4th Annual Blanket Drive Party/ Game Night

  • Nov 17, 2012 · 7:00 PM

It's that time of year again, for our annual blanket drive.  This will be our 4th year in a row ( YEAH!!!! 39 and Holding!!!! ) to collect $$$, blankets (new or used) and such for the less fortunate , and smaller items for the Humane Society.  For those of you not here the past several years, let me explain further.  We collect blankets, sleeping bags, comforters, quilts, jackets, etc for a homeless shelter, and we also collect smaller items for the Humane Society to use to put in the bottom of the kennels.  These smaller items include old throw rugs, sheets, pillowcases, larger towels, etc, anything you think that would work for a kennel liner.  We have a party to collect all these items.  Robin B. has offered up her home in Avondale for a 3rd year in a row.  The address gets sent out to YES rsvps the Friday before the party.  All established members (ones we have previously met in public) are invited to a BYOBeverage-finger food appetizer party.  Please include in your rsvp posting what you will bring, to avoid repeats and over-kill of appetizers. Somebody (we need a volunteer, here), parks in the driveway, and all of the Veteran's shelter items get thrown in their vehicle before we go in the house for the party.  Kathy Ryan has taken the smaller items to the Humane society in each previous year.  There is plenty of time to get "established" before the party, all you newbies!  Once we meet you in public, just once, you are "established". Anybody can bring anything, anytime to myself , Andy, Robin B., or Kathy R., at any event before the collection party, regardless if you plan on attending the "party" or not.  This year the blankets will be donated to a Homeless veterans facility.

We plan to play cards and games as well, this year, so it promises to be a great evening!  Any questions, please email me through the site.  God Bless You and a great big Thank You in advance!  Laura

These are the dates that Goodwill will be 1/2 off Saturdays for those of us who buy our blankets, etc.,  there.  Any monies donated go to Goodwill purchases. Dates are...,  October 20 , November 3 and 17.

    Thanks to Bob for giving Candy some blankets to give us for the Veterans. Won't you all donate one or more at any Meet-up before this party? Cash and Late donations would actually be accepted. This is our 4th year, in the last 3 years we took them to 2 homeless shelters and a children's homeless shelter, and this year they go to homeless veterans, these guys gave a lot for us, so please consider helping out. Call/text to make arrangements. Laura @[masked]
