Holiday Toy Drive Gives Primo Center Kids A Happy Holiday

November 30, 2006 – The National Coalition of 100 Black Women-Chicago Chapter (NCBW100) will host its first annual Holiday Mixer benefiting the Primo Center for Women and Children (PCWC) at the Metropolitan Club, Thursday November 30, 2006 at 6:00 P.M.

NCBW supports and advocates the education, health, and economic empowerment for African American women across the country. The Chicago Chapter has traditionally supported AA agencies that hold similar missions and goals with the metropolitan area.

“Each year we select an agency to provide toys, games and toiletries for their residents,” said Ingrid Johnson, NCWB Acting Vice-President of Program Planning. “This year we decided to take a more strategic approach, selecting an organization the Chicago chapter could build solid-long standing relationships with and actually affect the outcome. The Primo Center embodies all those attributes as well as the proven ability to successfully transform one family at a time.”

“We want to thank the Chicago Chapter of the NCBW for graciously hosting this holiday mixer on behalf of the Primo Center for Women and Children”, said Heather Mitchell, President Primo Center for Women and Children. “Because of the generosity of the NCBW members the families at the Primo Center will have a great Christmas.”

All game and toy donations will support the families of the Primo Center for Women and Children. Food and beverages will be provided. Please RSVP for this event at ncbwchicago@yahoo.com.
