Families in Crisis
Love in Action
Children and Moms the Crisis Center are Cheered Up
Barbara Lilley and her baking buddies from Assistance League of Klamath Basin get together before holidays to whip up trays full of treats for the mothers and children at the Crisis Center. “We make cupcakes and quick beads, decorate cookies and add fruits and candy to bring with the homemade goods to the center.”
“We wanted to give some extras along with the essentials to the families at the Crisis Center, so we’ve been providing diapers and wipes for the babies and a teddy bear for each of the young children to give them a little bit of security. Many of these children are traumatized and we hope the teddy bears give some comfort.”
Easter was the last holiday treat project. The volunteers from Assistance League made individual candy bags with chocolate bunnies, Easter eggs, and cookies for each child.
And to work off all of their energy, the children will received a huge basket with footballs, jump ropes, and other outdoor play equipment.

Single Women Receive Christmas Gifts
Barbara Lilley loads her car trunk with Christmas gifts she and Sherry Gongaware have purchased for the single women at the Crisis Center. The children always receive special treats, but the women are often left out. Thanks ladies for your thoughtfulness.
