Easter Basket Project
Our project to help Venice Christmas Angels to provide Easter baskets for children of needy families was a huge success. Thanks to START, 59 children had a special Easter this year. Donations to fill the Easter baskets came from 28 of our member households and 13 volunteers helped create and assemble the baskets.
VABI Urban Forest
On February 27th, volunteers did some weeding and mulching to support the developing VABI Urban Forest.
Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center
In February, START members helped check off two of items on the Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center's 'wish' list. Volunteers painted two rooms used to store and stage children's supplies. The Center also needed a computer. With the donation of a computer by one START member, another member was able to upgrade the computer with software to enable event planning, client communication, supply ordering and inventory control.
