We Would Like To Meet You!

The Newcomers & Friends Club of Redding . . .

The Redding Newcomers & Friends Club is a non-profit women's organization whose objectives are to welcome newcomers, as well as residents, who are not so new to the area. We provide social activities to help members become acquainted with the community and with each other. At present, there are over 400 members with club activities for individuals and couples. The number of current members and the variety of sponsored activities attest to the success of the Club.

Bring unwrapped gifts, such as a basket of items that you have put together, a craft item you have made, needlework you have stitched, crocheted, or knitted, a gift card, or a NEW item you have purchased for this event.  These are placed on tables with Paper Bags in front and a description of the item and donated by "Ms. Newcomer" written on the bag.

You purchase tickets, THEN cruise the many tables and put your tickets in any bag that has something you would like.


BE SURE TO BRING MAILING LABELS to put on the back of the ticket unless you want to write your name on all of your tickets.  If your ticket is drawn a runner will bring the item to you.

Food Pantry Donations

Thank you all for supporting this wonderful program. Our food donations made a huge difference last year. Our donations from the November meeting were directed to the Good News Rescue Mission.  Thank you for bringing a few extra cans to the November meeting as we will not be collecting at the December meeting.  We would like to continue with a helping hand for hungry children and families that need a bit of help from food pantries at the end of the month. In addition to canned goods and other food, personal care items and diapers are always helpful. Brown paper bags and plastic bags are also needed. Bring them in as well.
