Keeping Clients Healthy

Super volunteer Gloria was in the warehouse today and is showcasing our need for cleaning products.


Volunteers and staff have been hard at work assembling cleaning kits that will go out to clients. These kits are so important right now because these products will help to keep them healthy. Unfortunately today we discovered we’re very low on many of the items used to make up these kits.

Right now we are in need of hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent pods, and disinfectant cleaner. 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, check out our Amazon wish list where you can shop from home and ship directly 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.

Tuesday volunteers

Steve and Gloria are two of our terrific Tuesday volunteers. Steve can be found making kitchen kits for clients or accepting donations at the dock. Gloria can be found sorting and organizing incoming donations with Dianne or filling the client clothing bins. Both are willing to jump in where ever they are needed and we are grateful for their help.

Wonderful weekly volunteers

Gloria is one of our wonderful weekly volunteers. Typically she spends her time sorting and organizing incoming donations and then filling the client clothing bins for the days clients. We are so lucky to have the committed volunteers we have. They know our limitations of how many people we are allowed to have in the building so they all just do the work of 10 people each! Thanks Gloria!

Volunteer team

Jack and Steve are two of our terrific Tuesday team of volunteers. Today they spent time sorting and organizing incoming donations so that other volunteers could fill the client clothing bins. Typically they sort out household kitchen items and make small home goods kits for clients. Whatever the job they jump in with energy and enthusiasm.

Visitors

Yesterday we had a few special visitors on our first day back after our holiday break. Crystal’s 6 year old daughter Emily visited Mom at her new job, Tina’s daughter Audrey and one of our weekly volunteers Mel along with his two dogs. It’s rare that we get to see children at the warehouse anymore so it was a great treat to have two little girls visit on the same day. And Dianne is always thrilled to see any dogs visit! Thanks for stopping by.

Grateful for our volunteers

Thank you to our awesome team of volunteers who are doing the work every day that large groups would have in previous years. Because of COVID restrictions we have had to keep the numbers in the warehouse very small. As a result our small number of weekly volunteers are working harder than ever to sort through our incoming donations, help Lori with projects and fill the client clothing bins. We could never do it without them!

Volunteers clean up

Three volunteers, Rob, Jayson and Dawn help Lori clean up after the great toy giveaway to our partner agencies this week! Lori has to do her magic and reorganize the project room to go back to holding our ongoing projects including the next project which will be BITS bags in the spring.
