Since its founding in 2017, Freda Fund has organized numerous celebrations and events to support our mission. Following are highlights of our activities.
Art-themed Birthday & Graduation Celebration
Child Abuse Prevention Council of Sacramento, the Sacramento Chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women, and artist Lisa Feldman co-sponsored a Freda Fund art-themed birthday and graduation celebration with special gift deliveries and a Zoom party.
Walking In Their Footsteps
This celebration featured a video highlighting Phyllis' history with the Einstein Center, and honored the remarkable community volunteers that she met along the way: Dorothy Marshall, Debbie Lewis and Susie Goodwin. The Zoom event concluded with a special tribute to Les Finke on his retirement as Eintein Senior Center's Executive Director.
In recognition of our "Walking in their Footsteps" event honorees, Freda Fund is contributing to two community efforts:
Establishing a "Dorothy's Corner" collection of new books for students at Edison Library
Purchasing a karaoke machine for the Einstein Senior Center
In honor of June–September birthdays, the Freda Fund celebrated by planting a vegetable garden at Choices Charter School in Sacramento. Twenty birthday youth engaged in a Zoom party, and received a special "planting roots" themed gift of a plant, along with cupcakes and a gift card.
Birthday Baking Class
Child Abuse Prevention Council of Sacramento and Freda Fund presented a special treat to spring birthday celebrants. Local baker Lindsay Nathanson of Sprinkles for Breakfast shared baking tips with a virtual Zoom party featuring an interactive baking class. Each birthday person received a gift card, cupcakes from Terri Littleton and baking supplies to bake with Lindsay.
