COMMUNUITY SEVICES
COASTAL WOMEN'S SHELTER
  • Serves families affected by domestic violence in
    Craven, Jones, and Pamlico counties in Eastern N.C.

  • Guild members regularly donate items for the shelter,
    anything from food to personal items.

  • At monthly business meetings, a basket is passed
    around for monetary donations.  This money is used
    to purchase gifts for a family adopted at Christmas.

  • May, 2015, the guild made and decorated rectangular
    "Flags of Hope" which were used to raise awareness
    of domestic violence.  The flags were hung
    downtown and supporters  purchased one and wrote a
    message on it.  It ran through the end of October,
    Domestic Violence Awareness Month
             The flags were then turned back to the guild     
    and were subsequently turned into charity quilts.
