The Meadowlark Service League ("MSL") is a non-profit organization of women dedicated to raising funds for a variety of local charitable organizations and programs. They have given over $2,000,000 to worthy organizations since their inception in 1971. This year they awarded $235,000 in grants to deserving, non profit organizations and scholarships to local graduating high school seniors and continuing college students. One of the conditions of the grants is that all recipients must be located in Ventura County and the money must be spent in Ventura County. I am honored that the Meadowlarks included Luggage of Love as one of their recipients this year. Thank you to all of the ladies who work countless hours to raise these funds, it is greatly appreciated and I am humbled beyond words. I look forward to putting these funds into a pod placement on the Casa Pacifica Shelter site. Your grant money will help the many children in transition in Ventura County so they do not have to put their personal belongings into trash bags.
