Summer is coming…please clean out your closets!


I swear when the days get longer, so do kids legs. I don’t know if there is some statistic, but I would love for those of you who may know this to give me the details, because all of our kids from all of our families in all of the shelters seem to grow like weeds starting in April all the way through August.

Sometimes the entire wardrobe of clothes that we’ve given a family needs to be upgraded by the middle of summer.

There are a lot of things that I would like to invite you to start really sending in hot and heavy, we are going to need swimsuits, shorts, things that kids can do in the summer, and we are going to need hair binders, lip gloss, and as much full size deodorant as you can send.

Also please send us any plastic dishes that we can use for picnics, paper plates, things that will help families who are going to eat at the park. Many of our families will be at the park during the day because the shelters will require them to be outside.

We need water bottles, Band-Aids, antibiotic ointment, Bactine, bug spray, sunscreen, all of the items that are needed for a beach bag.
