Let's get into the spirit of giving by bringing something for the homeless in our city! More people than ever are homeless due to the economy and as winter sets in, they are cold and hungry. Many of them have mental health issues or are vicitms of abuse. I would appreciate it if everyone would bring at least one of the following items below. My friend Shelly and I are going to bring it to a homeless shelter on Christmas day:
Used blankets, tarps, sleeping bags and sleeping pads, yoga mats, coats, sweaters, lightly used shoes and backpacks, clothing for an interview that are clean and in good shape. Please do not bring soiled items or items with holes, broken zippers, etc. If in doubt, leave it out.
New socks, scarves, gloves, mittens and hats
Toiletries such as soap, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorant, nail clippers,razors, comb, brush, etc.
Non perishable food. Easy prep stuff like canned soup, chili, chowder and such is best. Hot chocolate, tea, instant coffee are also appreciated.
And let's have some fun by enjoying some fabulous happy hour food and drinks together! Extended happy hour for our group!
$3 Draft Beers
$4 House wine
$ Mai Tai's
$2.95 Spring Rolls and Sliders
$5.95 for Poke Bowls
Happy Hour prices extended until our group leaves!
