The Women's Club of Milton was included in the Good News Across America June 28 issue of Parade magazine.
To represent Delaware, the magazine chose the club’s story about donations of booties and money to the Milton Community Foundation.
The club submitted the following information: Over the past two years, members of the Women’s Club of Milton in Delaware has been graced with good weather during their annual Milton Holiday House Tour (a December showcase of decorated historical homes in town), which meant they had an excess of plastic shoe coverings they keep on hand in the case of inclement weather. Knowing that their local health care providers were in need of personal protective equipment (including plastic booties), the women’s club donated their reserve stash to Beebe Healthcare in Lewes, Delaware, in addition to a lump $1,000 sum that was distributed in the form of grocery gift cards to families in need by the Milton Community Foundation.
Under “Delaware: A helpful ‘bootie call,’” the club’s effort was included, though its photograph was not published.
The online edition includes the story and club photo. To see the entire article with all 50 states mentioned, go to parade.com/neighbors.
Club members extend thanks to Nancy Trask, who brought attention to the possibility of being a part of this project. Thanks also go to Communications Chair Barbara German, who worked along with Linda King to contact the Parade photo editor as requested.
