"I'm Not Ready to Make Nice"

Happy Thursday


Happy Thursday

With the holidays coming and everyone rushing to make sure their family is covered have you stopped to think of those doing with out?  When I turn on the news I am constantly seeing families losing their homes and have no place to go.  I see people who have no heat in their homes and up where I live that is not just sad but is potentially deadly (I’m not being dramatic, someone died last year because they had no heat).


Here are a few things you can do to help.

While You’re at the store grab an extra gift to add to Toys For Tots the boxes will be out very soon.

Clean out your closests and donate those old coats, hats, mittens, and gloves.  The Salvation Army is happy to receive them, Goodwill’s donations are way down and they need them, and there are many other charities looking for donations as well.

Clean out your pantry and stock a food pantry.  Go through your cupboards and get rid of those items that are still good but you’re not going to use.


When you’re at the store and shopping plan a meal, get the items for it and drop it off at the food pantry.  Call your local food pantry and see if they can take items that need refrigerated or frozen many can.

Those of us that coupon donate some of your surplus.  Our Women’s Resource Center is in need of: Sanitary Needs, Toothbrushes & Paste, Razors, Shampoo, Soap, Make Up, you get the idea.

Even if you only drop off one item as you pass by that is one need filled!
