Thank You, Simple Steps Community ❤️
 
We want to thank our generous donors who donated for the Simple Steps 3rd Anniversary Fundraiser for Asian Women’s Shelter(AWS). We raised $3,300 in one week, purchased AWS’s wishlist items, and delivered them in time for Mother’s Day. Your gift of donation provided immediate financial support to women and their children who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Wishlist items included: small home appliances, sanitary items, educational toys for children, diapers, wipes, socks, and gift cards. 

One of the residents said, “This generous gift made me feel very special and cannot thank Simple Steps enough for the fantastic gifts,” with the sweetest smile. Your generous support made our anniversary fundraiser very successful. Thank you for joining us in building community resilience during this difficult time. 

Sincerely,
Doyeon Kim
