The Order of the Eastern Star, P.H.A., Burford’s Memorial, Chapter 383, partnered with the CASA Women’s Shelter during the holidays and delivered a variety of items to the shelter residents and children.

Joyce Hall, chairwoman, spearheaded the effort, which was inspired by the drive and motivation of the chapter’s members to give back to the community, especially around the holiday season, a spokeswoman said.

The chapter donated food, children’s and women’s clothes, toys, bedding and other items to help the CASA residents to transition to a new beginning, the spokeswoman said.

This is the chapter’s sixth annual CASA Community Service event and the first of several scheduled community service and outreach programs for 2017.
