Wild Iris would like to say thank you to the communities of Inyo and Mono counties for your generosity and support.
Whether you’ve been a long-time supporter, or you’re relatively new to the Wild Iris family, your monetary gifts, as well as those of time and talent, have made a tremendous difference in the lives of those we serve.
The holidays are a particularly difficult time for victims of domestic violence and their children. In 2012, with the assistance and generosity of individuals, corporations, and service agencies alike, Wild Iris was able to provide 13 local families with holiday food baskets that included turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, canned goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, rolls, milk, butter, and hot chocolate.
In addition, Wild Iris was also able to provide 37 local children with Christmas gift bags that in part, included toys, books, clothing, music, backpacks, personal items, gift cards, and sports equipment.
These generous donations were made possible by Bishop Vons, Mammoth Lakes Lions Club, Mammoth Lakes Sunrise Rotary, Bishop Noon Rotary, the Timbisha Shoshone Tribal Office, Jacks Waffle Shop, Eric Schatz Bakery, Petite Pantry, and The Mammoth Lakes Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as well as private donors who wish to remain anonymous. The Bishop Noon Rotary also provided volunteers to help pack food and gift baskets, the material for which was donated by Coni Coffman.
On behalf of our entire organization and especially from the people we serve, thank you for being what Margaret Mead described as a “small, thoughtful group of committed citizens changing the world.”
Together we’ve been able to provide life changing services for many who have nowhere else to turn for help.
Thank you for being part of what makes Wild Iris so special, and for your dedication to changing the world, one life at a time.
