Members of the Red Hat Society’s 3-L Decatur Chapter  recently gathered at New Beginning Worship Center in Decatur to donate, sort and assemble boxes of clinic supplies for local elementary schools. The group purchased the supplies to assist school nurses in providing medical care to students.  The boxes included bandages, cotton balls, cold compresses, water, juice, crackers, disinfectant wipes and hygiene products.  The boxes were decorated and delivered to Kelley Lake, Toney, Snapfinger, Rainbow and Murphy-Candler elementary schools on Aug. 21.

Principals and nurses from the selected schools were excited and grateful to receive the donations.  The club’s future service projects include creating holiday boxes for a senior citizen home and feeding meals to homeless people in the area.

The chapter was started by Yolandria Jones-Totten, a former DeKalb Schools educator.

The Red Hat Society is a national organization that promotes socializing and sisterhood for women over 50 years of age.  Members of the 3-L Decatur chapter (so named for “Ladies Loving Life”) have raised money for the American Cancer Society, donated toiletry-filled purses to needy mothers and sponsored a Christmas party for a community preschool.
