C O M M U N I T Y S E R V I C E N E W S : S I L E N T AU C T I O N I T E M S

This year CREW Richmond is teaming again with GRACRE in a Joint Social that will be held in June. It
has always been well attended and enjoyed by all. This event will be the main CREW Richmond fundraiser
for the Flagler Home. In the past we have simply held a raffle for a David Yurman bracelet. This year we
wanted to step it up a bit so we have decided to have a raffle and a silent auction at the event.

We are currently soliciting contributions for the silent auction. If you have or know someone who has
items or services which can be donated, i.e. architectural services, sporting events, restaurant certificates,
legal work, artwork, getaways, jewelry, etc., please contact them and see if they would be willing to donate
it to a wonderful cause. They can get some advertising exposure since the company and contact names will
be listed at the function and sent out to the various groups when bidding opens. A full wish list of items
and already contributed items is included at the end of the newsletter. We have also included information
to help you explain who the auction is supporting and a form to fill out for the contributor and for our re-
cords. Please go out drum up some great donations and be creative. Pick-up of an item can be arranged
through the committee. Please contact anyone on the committee if you have any questions.

We will again be doing the back-to-school backpacks in August and the stockings in December for the
Flagler children. Kimberly Tucker, the director of the Flagler program, indicated that in years past what
CREW Richmond has done in the way of contributions was a blessing and not counted on in their budgets.
Unfortunately with the current economy, a lot of their funding has been cut or reduced and they will need
our contributions to continue to succeed and assist their families in need.

    Flagler Home is located at St. Joseph’s Villa on Brook Road in Richmond, Virginia. It was the first
transitional housing program of its kind in Virginia. It includes a comprehensive program that successfully
empowers and transitions homeless families with children into permanent housing. It is achieved by direct
    delivery of individualized education, developmental and psychological services through on-campus
   residential and off-campus services. The program provides services to more than 60 adults and 100
 children at any given time, this relates to 26 families on and 24 off campus. The home has served more
 than 600 families which includes more than 590 mothers and 1,200 children since its inception in 1989.
