Here is another way for those attending to help the clients of the Shelters, and even a way for those not attending to help - below is a list of easy, inexpensive donation items needed!
1. Please bring a pot holders, some of the food donations are hot.
2. Here is a wonderful other way to help. Some clients show up at the shelters with just the clothes on their backs. Just think how comforting and helpful it would be for them to be given a little overnight bag with a few travel size amenities. I am putting together little overnight bags for this purpose. PLEASE donate little travel size amenities to put in the bag: shampoo, conditioner, moisture cream, toothpaste, hygiene products, grooming products, (for men and women and children) etc. You may have these hotel size things around the house, or pick up a few at the store. We could also use appropriate little bags to put the stuff in. The 99 cent store even sells a little plastic travel bag with empty plastic bottles and little toothpaste/ toothbrush sets. We need that too please. Bring it to the park on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, I'll have a box there to collect the stuff.
