NBWC Provides Gifts for Guardian Ad Litem Children

Gale Horne and Liz Maravelas

Forty- seven children in Craven County had a brighter Christmas this year thanks to the generosity of the New Bern Woman’s Club.  According to Gale Horne, GAL District Administrator for Craven, Carteret and Pamlico Counties, these children are all under the supervision of the court and have been placed with other family members – mostly grandparents –  who often do not have the financial resources to provide for much besides the basic necessities.  All of the children in the program who live in Craven County received articles of clothing, toys and books, beautifully wrapped and chosen with care by the members of the club.  1st VP Liz Maravelas, who has chaired this drive for the last 8 years, said, “It makes me proud to belong to such a wonderful club that supports our local community with open arms”.
