DONATIONS NEEDED FOR THE HOMELESS- PLEASE PAY IT FORWARD

  • Nov 30, 2013 · 1:00 PM

*PAY IT FORWARD*DROP OFF DATES NOW UNTIL NOV30      

   I am asking our members to donate winter wear for the homeless. The DI (Drop In Center for The Homeless) is in desperate need of men's winter attire . Can you please go through your closets and any used winter wear you no longer need and donate it to this worthy cause. A list of items they are in need of are the following . Boots, coats, mitts, toques, scarfs, snow pants and blankets. The blankets are for those that sleep outdoors . Some of us are in a position to help those less fortunate and the cold is already upon us .  Some of those that are homeless are not there by choice but unfortunate circumstances have forced them to the streets. Please do not paint all the homeless with the same paint brush. Please do not judge them unless you have walked in their shoes. They need a " Hand Up Not A Hand Out " I also would love it if you could place something small into a pocket just to let them know that someone cares. Thanks for all of your donations. Angel has agreed we can use Om as a drop off. Thanks Angel for making this possible. Drop offs started Nov.14 and runs until Nov.30.You can drop off items when you attend a meetup or classes. Thanks for your help. Vi

    Vi, I was there right at 1:00 and dropped off men's sweaters, leather coat, was waiting for you but decided it may be some time before you arrived so just came home. How did it go? Did you get to the DI hopefully before the nasty weather arrives?

    Hi there, am in a project for the DI with my sorority chapter, buying socks and filling them to take down there. All kinds of toiletries, chocolates, most necessary items. 3 pair per member. However, I will go through some closets and see what I can do. I have to leave a bunch of stuff for community living on my step on the 25th so looks like I may empty some much needed space after all, without a garage sale.

    We don't have anything to give right now (we did this recently already) but I will post about the need on Facebook to help spread the word.
