The Roanoke County Republican Committee held their bi-monthly GOP luncheon at Sunnybrook Inn on December 16. Instead of giving each other gifts or drawing names, the members decided to make a donation of gifts and toys to the Roanoke Rescue Mission Women and Children’s Center.
The Women and Children’s Center houses approximately 175 people, including 58 children. The center offers help with jobs, education and housing needs for homeless members of our community.
Mike Bailey, Chairman of the Roanoke County Republican Committee, delivered a trunk load of gifts that were collected at the luncheon to the center for the homeless children. The gifts will be distributed Christmas morning based on the needs and desires of the residents.
