The Northwest Region Soroptimist International clubs recently donated $730 as well as new towels, sheets, comforters and toiletries to the new Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County shelter.

The confidential shelter, which opened Nov. 6, is located in Everett and offers 52 beds and other support services to victims of domestic violence and their children.

The donations were collected during the Soroptimist International of the Americas 60th Northwestern Region meeting held Oct. 11-13 at Tulalip Casino.

“All clubs in our district brought donations,” said local member Sue Levison. “It was very impressive and heart warming.”

The Soroptimists work to improve the lives of women and girls. Clubs assess the needs of their communities and then undertake projects that will best fill those needs.

The Soroptimist International Northwestern Region has 92 clubs in five states (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska) and has more than 3,500 members.

Local clubs throughout the Northwestern Region serve a vast array of communities with one common objective: doing the best for women and girls.
