COMMUNUITY SEVICES
COASTAL WOMEN'S SHELTER
CWS Craven, Jones, and Pamlico counties in Eastern NC.

  • Guild members regularly donate items for the shelter,
    everything from food to personal items.

  • At monthly business meetings, a basket is passed for
    monetary donations.  This money is used to purchase
    gifts for a family(s) adopted at Christmas.

  • In May of 2015, the guild made and decorated
    rectangular "Flags of Hope" which were used to raise
    awareness of domestic violence.  These flags were
    hung downtown and supporters purchased one and
    wrote a message on it.  It ran through the end of
    October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
             The flags were then turned back to the guild and
    were subsequently turned into charity quilts.
