Items needed are: Night lights, welcome bag items including personal toiletries (shampoo/conditioner, body wash, toothpaste/brushes, body lotions) as well as small stuffed animals, small toys, games/puzzles, pens, and pencils. They also need fresh playdough, glue sticks and craft glue. Party items such as decorated plates, cups, napkins, crepe paper and balloon. With back to school and fall and winter coming, they are also very much in need of children’s underwear and socks – all sizes are needed, but the majority of children are pre-school and elementary school age. Since the women at the shelter do not have cars and they have to walk their children everywhere the go, they need umbrellas in both adult and child sizes. As always, new or gently used clothing in any size is always welcome. Please deposit the items in the box in the Narthex which will be there through May 22, 2016.
