The beautiful wrap was one way EVWL has been able to support this

wonderful organization.

East Valley Women's League supports SEEDS for Autism, a 501c3 organization that is uniquely focused on supporting young adults transition from high school to the work place.  SEEDS offers a supportive environment for students with professional artisans teaching a variety of skills in woodworking, ceramics, welding, jewelry making and other valuable trades.  The ultimate goal is to help these talented students transition from "learning to earning."  EVWL supports this mission through financial support, scholarships for those otherwise unable to attend, volunteer hours working with students and staff, as well as by hosting seasonal events and trunk shows for SEEDS to showcase their beautiful items throughout the year.

EVWL is a 501c3 Arizona non-profit that supports underprivileged  women and children 
in our community.

SEEDS for Autism

Every year our members bring good cheer, fresh flowers, and holiday baskets to dozens of elderly women in our community. Many of these ladies have no family or support nearby. 

Over the years, hundreds of lovely ladies have opened the door to our friendly faces and appreciated knowing someone cares. We provide packages with blankets, lotion and other fun treats at Christmas time. On Mother's Day we deliver fresh flowers to these wonderful women.

The joy and appreciation we are privileged to see is priceless. To read more about EVWL's Homebound Women's Project, click here.
