What can we say about Valerie… She is an amazing donor who regularly reaches out to ask what our current needs are, then she shops! Last week, I posted that we needed paper towels and she showed up shortly after with her regular donations AND the paper towels I just said we needed. We are so thankful for all that Valerie does for our organization.
Cheryl Porzio stopped by the warehouse this morning with her donations for our Mother Day gift bag project. These donations will become part of the special bags that we will be gifting to local moms who are struggling.
Thank you Cheryl. Your donations are helping to bring joy to so many moms in the Merrimack Valley.
Hank the Tank stopped by for a visit yesterday while his human dropped off donations. He made friends with the staff and Dianne was especially excited to meet him!
Dianne is patiently waiting at the donation dock for your donations. If you have clothing, shoes, diapers, cleaning products, or hygiene products to donate stop by the warehouse today before 3pm and fill Dianne’s bin!
Oliver and Kelly Lucy, from Chelmsford Integrated Preschool PTO, stopped by the warehouse today with a generous donation of new socks! The school held a collection and were able to donate 425 pairs of new women’s, men’s, and children’s socks. These will become part of our Mother’s Day gift bags and also go out to our regular clients picking up clothing orders. Thank you Oliver, Kelly, and all of the CHIPS families!
A huge thank you goes out to Lisa Dibartolomeo! She not only dropped off donations for BITS Bags, but she also included a bag of beautiful, hand made baby blankets. Each blanket was wrapped up in a bow and included a matching hat as well as a hand written note card including the size of the blanket, what it’s made of, washing instructions, and hat size. We were so very excited to receive them and we can’t wait to include them in our newborn baskets and gift them to new moms.
Thank you Lisa for your bits donations, these beautiful blankets and hats, and all of the love and thoughtfulness that went into these gifts!
The Tuesday team! Jack and Steve come in every Tuesday to sort through the house wares and kitchen donations. They are responsible for making up all of the household kits that we give out to clients moving into new homes. Rob is here every Tuesday afternoon to accept your donations at the donation dock. We are so lucky to have such an awesome team of dedicated, regular volunteers! (Not pictured- Mel and Mike who also work the donation dock and help with all sorts of other warehouse tasks)
Thank you Lisa Tenczar and Dance Energy for the awesome donation of diaper bags and crib sheets. These were much needed items in the warehouse and will soon go out to new moms in our community.
Basic Items for Toddlers are being delivered!! Thank you to all of the generous donors who stopped by and who shipped to us this week. We are so thankful for all of these items.
But we’re not done yet! We still need new toys for these bags. If you’re able to donate these items, or complete bags, you can drop off at the warehouse Tuesday-Saturday 9-2:45.
