Clients recently stopped by the warehouse to pick up furniture, bedding, and a household kit. Your donations make it possible for those in need to have access to basic items. Right now we are in need of sauce pots, cookie sheets, mixing bowls, microwaves, hand sanitizer, baby gates, and high chairs. If you have any of these items and would like to donate, please drop items off during our donation hours Tuesday-Saturday from 9-2:45pm. If you prefer to shop online we have an Amazon wish list where you can shop from home and ship direct to us. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/D0WB109LX427…. Thank you for sharing with friends, family, neighbors and online groups that might have some basic items to spare.

Patricia and Judy stopped by the warehouse yesterday to pick up 115 blankets and toiletries. They will be bringing these to the local homeless population, to help keep them clean, dry, and warm. Thank you to all of the donors who have provided these items. Your donations are helping out our most vulnerable neighbors.
Please join staff and volunteers in wishing Patty a very happy retirement. After 7 years of keeping everyone in line and on task, your daily presence will surely be missed. Thank you for all of your dedication to our mission. Enjoy all of your free time!
