CAYA Coven’s Solstice of Eternal Renewal

Alameda, CA 94501
$10-$20 donation requested, donations of menstrual supplies also welcome (see details below)
During the longest night of the year, when all is plunged into darkness, we kindle the flames within and ignite the hearthfires of community. We celebrate the long night, and we also look at its fearsome sides. We embrace the lessons of the past year, and greet the year to come.
In honor of Hestia, keeper of welcoming home and warming hearth, and of Hermes, messenger who ventures into the darkness to bless and protect the travellers and those who are on the outside looking in, we will once again be assembling kits of menstrual supplies and other hygiene and comfort items to be donated to local shelters.
We will be providing tampons, pads, and other essential items. We also welcome your contributions. Here are some suggested items:
regular tampons (individually wrapped, unscented)
regular pads (wings preferred, individually wrapped, unscented)
travel package handi-wipes
Panty-liners (individually wrapped, unscented, with “full coverage stick”)
travel package size tissue
Feel free to stay after the ritual for a celebration and potluck feast. No one turned away for lack of funds.
