One Brick at Spill the Wine to enjoy their delicious wines and fantastic cuisine, while also helping support a GREAT local non-profit in need -
Bundles of Love!!
(Great info below...incl. details about how YOU can help!)
Bundles of Love Charity is a local non-profit that makes baby clothing and bedding for sick and needy newborn and premature babies. They provide these items in a “bundle” to local hospitals, women’s shelters and other social service agencies, where the social workers give them to the babies who need them most. Sometimes the need is caused by financial distress, sometimes it is an illness in the family, multiple births, and sometime it is caused by natural disasters like floods, fire, and tornadoes.
On July 17th, Bundles of Love experienced
MAJOR FLOODING in their facility and were unable to continue doing their great work.
Overnight, over 2 feet of water mixed with mud entered through the doors of the leased space. Many items will need to be thrown away, a lot of others may hopefully be saved with a good washing, and floors and walls will need repairs, replacements, and repainting. Even goods that were in plastic bins floated away and then tipped over, spilling their contents. We expect to be in urgent need of MANY items, a lot of people time, and money shortly to help us recover.
We encourage you to join us at Spill the Wine to help get Bundles of Love back in action!
Drinks for a Cause is sponsoring this event, which means that Spill the Wine will be donating 20% of all food and drink sales!
PRIZES?! Oh yeah!! We are holding a
raffle for all of those who donate items to this great cause! Each item will get you one raffle ticket and we will draw for some awesome prizes!
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Donate Diapers - for newborn and premature babies!
Bundles of Love had received a large donation of diapers, wipes and lotion from Target the week before the storm, and they were stored in their original cardboard on the floor, stacked 3 boxes high. When the first set of boxes got wet, the boxes collapsed and all the boxes ended up in a jumble all over the floor. Sadly, most of our newborn diapers were soaked and all of our diapers for premature babies were ruined.
2. Donate onesies, sleepers, pacifiers, socks, hats...you know, the cute stuff! :)
Because our volunteers have been busy removing ruined items and doing laundry all month, we anticipate that we will not have enough clothing and bedding to assemble all the bundles that our partner agencies are expecting.
You will also get a chance to learn more about how fun and easy it can be to make a difference in the community when you volunteer with One Brick! We have a
Bundles of Love event coming up later this month - check it out!!
