  • Thank You!

    Deercreek is so lucky to have so many generous members and friends of our Women’s Alliance. Once again, we have been able to help so many in the Jacksonville community who are less fortunate than ourselves, and we couldn’t have done it without you all. Wishing you, and your families, a happy and healthy 2019.

    Hats Off to Fashion

    ‘Hats Off to Fashion’, the annual fashion show hosted by the Deercreek Women’s Alliance, and one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, was a huge success thanks to all the attendees, donors, and our generous volunteers who were part of the evenings festivities. Over 100 ladies were in attendance on the evening of November 8th, for a delicious meal, followed by a fabulous parade of Deercreek models in fashion pieces provided by Dillard’s. The success of this event supports the mission of the Alliance, and the charities that we donate to each year.

    Thank you again, we are so blessed by everyone’s generosity.

DWA Spotlight on Charity

    Spotlight on Charity – PACE Center for Girls

    Spotlight on Charity – PACE Center for Girls

    For those new to the neighborhood, not familiar with one of our charities, PACE Center for Girls is a Florida-based, nationally recognized not-for-profit organization that provides non-residential, prevention, intervention, and diversion services for girls and young women of middle and high school age. PACE uses a comprehensive and holistic model that integrates social services, education and career readiness on a safe, gender-responsive environment that reflects an understanding of the lives of girls, and responds to their strengths and challenges.

    The mission is to provide girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy.

    There are many volunteer opportunities at the center, however our main focus is on Mrs. Mary’s Boutique. Since the girls come from low-income homes, Mrs. Mary’s Boutique provides a way for the girls to ‘buy’ items with points they’ve earned through grades, good deeds, and class attendance. Mrs. Mary’s Boutique is usually every six weeks. Donations needed are new or gently used age appropriate clothing, shoes, purses, accessories such as jewelry, nail polish, and toiletries.

    Pulling off Mrs. Mary’s Boutique is a BIG undertaking. Wednesday is spent setting up, sorting, and organizing the many donated items. Thursday is shopping day and volunteers help the girls pick out items and ready them to be taken home. The items left need to be packed and put away. Volunteers are always needed for these two days.

    The DWA also graciously donates money to this wonderful organization. The money is used for things needed for the girls throughout the year such as the purchase of bras that the girls have been sized for, and clothing racks and storage bins for the Boutique.

    Thank you to all who have donated time and times to this great charity. If you are interest in volunteering or have items to donate, please contact Vicki Khan, PACE Center for Girls DWA Charity Chair at 923-3538 or vickikhan1113@gmail.com.
