Women's Lunch Place
EACH MOTHER’S DAY CARD PROVIDES A WEEK OF MEALS FOR ONE OF OUR GUESTS.
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9, 2021.
We understand the importance of staying connected during difficult times. Our cards are the perfect opportunity for you to honor the special women in your life.
For a $25 donation, each Mother’s Day card funds a week of healthy meals for a Women’s Lunch Place guest.
Each year, the card features artwork created by a WLP guest through our Creative Expressions program. This year’s artist is Darcy––her story is below.
In a reflection of the resilience shown by the women we serve, this year’s design is a vibrant collage crafted from fragments of other greeting cards and Mother’s Day designs from years past.
Women’s Lunch Place will mail a card on your behalf or we can send it to you directly. Cards can be sent blank or personalized with your printed message.
By funding the Healthy Meals program and individualized services that empower women to make positive changes in their lives, our cards are a gift that gives back.

Meet the Artist
DARCY – 2021 ARTIST
Darcy was a home health aide until a serious car accident in 2008 left her unable to work. Her family was in Brazil and she became homeless with no one to help her. She came to Women’s Lunch Place for a meal and was connected with advocates who helped her find a permanent home.
Over the years, Darcy has found support and community at WLP. She is 84 years old and relies on the WLP Healthy Meals program for lunch. A regular participant in the Creative Expressions program, she loves to paint, embroider, and do beadwork.
Darcy has become a mentor to new guests who find comfort and healing in the art programs. She regularly donates her art for WLP fundraising initiatives and collaborates with other guests to design decorations for the shelter. According to Darcy, Women’s Lunch Place continues to help her art flourish and keep her spirit optimistic.
