Brunch and Bras

At this brunch, we are going to catch up with each other, and pass out the underwear that our chapter won at convention. We will also have an underwear drive, and give the new undies to Women and Children First, as many families leave home with very little of their personal belongings to leave abusive situations. We hope you can make it out!
