Seventh Annual Women Helping Women Event

Nov 02, 2015 12:43PM

Riverview Nursery and Garden Center, in Temple, will hold its seventh annual Women Helping Women event, from 12 to 4 p.m., November 22. This fundraising event provides much needed supplies for Mary’s Shelter, in Reading. Attendees are asked to bring household items, baby gifts, toiletries, diapers, cleaning supplies and blankets. Monetary donations will also be accepted. The event will include refreshments, raffle prizes, live music, free chair massages, vendors and more.

According to Diane Salks, owner of Riverview, “This special day has always been really fun for all who attend, and we join together as a community to help raise money and donate items for women and babies.”

Mary’s Shelter provides residential and non-residential services for pregnant women and women with newborns in need of a supportive environment, and also helps prepare mothers with newborns for independent living and a vision of hope for the future.

Riverview Nursery and Garden Center—a division of Riverview Tree and Landscaping Inc.—was founded in 1973, and has grown to be one of Berks County’s largest and most respected garden center, nursery and landscaping companies.

Location: 3049 Pricetown Rd., Temple. For more information, call 610-929-5049 or visit To view the complete wish list for Marys Shelter or make an online donation, visit
