Gifts for the Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls
This detail from a page in the Seventh Annual Report of the Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls (1922) lists the gifts donated to the school from various people and organizations in Richmond. The gifts range from organdy dresses and toiletries, to athletic equipment, a piano, magazines, holiday parties, and the expenses for a minister to hold services over a five-month span. Among the donors were social activists such as Maggie Lena Walker, who, along with the Council of Colored Women, provided a Christmas feast of turkey and all the trimmings, and Mary-Cooke Branch Munford who gave "cocoanut marshmallows for each girl."
