Assisting women in new beginnings

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead


My name is Cheryl Stoneburgh, founder of the Basketeers, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our volunteer project of assisting women as they transition out of shelters back into the community.

Each year violence and abuse drive more than 100,000 women and children out of their homes and into shelters. The Basketeers mission is to provide some of the simple necessities and niceties of life to women as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.  

For safety reasons related to the Covid pandemic, we are focused on coordinating a campaign that minimizes everyone's exposure and keeps donors, volunteers, chapter organizers as well as the women and sheleters staff healthy.  Instead of shopping, making a basket and dropping it off to your chapter event, we are asking you to consider making a donation towards the purchase of gift cards. Full program details are outlined on the 2020 Campaign page.

The need continues to be great. With your donations, we hope to send a powerful message of support to these courageous women.
