This year instead of holding a Mardi Gras party, VOA encourages you to celebrate with a Mardi Bras party instead. Invite your friends over for a festive gathering and ask them to bring a donation of women’s undergarments (new bras and underwear with the tags please) or feminine hygiene products, which will be given to the women staying in VOA’s emergency shelters.
Empowering people in our community to rise out of poverty and move toward self-reliance.
