Garden Club of the Back Bay member Pam Steel will be running in the Tufts Health Plan 10K onÂ October 8 for the benefit of Women for Women International, raising money for WfWI’s programs in the Congo. Women for Women International works with socially excluded women in eight countries where war and conflict have devastated lives and communities. Each woman serves has her own storyâ€“some of loved ones murdered, and others of physical and emotional trauma. Most have endured a struggle for survival.
Women who enroll in Women for Women’s one-year program learn job skills and receive business training so they can earn a living. They come to understand their rights and how to fight for those rights in their homes, their communities and their nations. They learn how to become leaders.Â As part of this endeavor, Pam is offering packages of daffodil bulbs (12 in each package) in either a mix of colors or solid yellow, plus some small purple reticulata irises.Â The price per package is $8, or five packages for $35, delivered to your door in the Back Bay – if you are outside of the area, contact Pam for more information on pick up.Â Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order.
