    Hi, I want to donate. What kind of coffee and how much?

    January 23, 2013

    • Molly S.

      Adonis scratch the coffee idea. I received a call back saying they don't need that. Perhaps some magazines and thank you cards expressing your gratitude. Also healthy snacks. :-)

    FYI - The 99 Cents Only Store sells phone cards for $0.99, which is good for 99 minutes, and there is a local Long Beach access number. If you should get any of these, make sure you get the instruction card (you usually have to ask for them) along with the pin number receipt, which comes out on a separate piece of paper from the cash register.

      Just went to my local store and bought some cards. Unfortunately, they were out of the instruction cards, but your cash register receipt for your entire purchase gives you an 800 number to get the local access number, plus a customer service number, and website address for further instructions. So, I'm just going to do up a sheet on Word and staple the phone card PIN receipt to the sheet.

  • Darlene

    Thanks Gail, I have two 99 cent stores in my area, so will drop by today to pick up some calling cards w/instructions.

    Hi can you provide the time frame for the event on 1/26?

    January 2, 2013

    • Molly S.

      Hi Suzanne. Tentatively 2-4pm. I'm almost 100% sure it'll be that time slot. Hope to see you there.

    "I was hungry, and you fed me; thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me."

    I am not a Christian and I don't believe in God. But I absolutely adore the guy who said this and challenged anyone with ears to hear the words to live up to them. Please tell me the when and the where and I will be there.
