Hello everyone! We’re busy preparing for another giveaway on June 14th. If you’ve been stuck inside during the rain & doing some spring cleaning, we’d be happy to take some things off your hands! We collect a variety of items, and it’s easy to schedule a pick up. Please email our donations coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the web email form on our Contact page. She will be happy to arrange a pick up day & time that works with your schedule. Or you can bring them to the next giveaway! If you’re one of the lucky ducks that has already finished spring cleaning, check out our Amazon wish list. Just a few clicks can send your donation straight to us!
Here’s our traffic light shopping guide for this month’s giveaway:
RED LIGHT (we don’t need more of these right now):
Notepads & pens
Feminine hygiene products (pads, tampons, pantiliners)
YELLOW LIGHT (we probably have enough to make it through this giveaway, but a few more wouldn’t hurt):
Men’s & women’s socks
GREEN LIGHT (we really need these items!):
Dental kits/supplies (travel toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss)
First aid kits/supplies
* means we are completely out of these items.
We would love to get your plastic bags! We go through a lot of them at the giveaway, but we’d like some extras to make plarn. Plarn is plastic yarn that can be made out of strips of plastic bags. The ATXAHH Gettin’ Knotty group
is planning to crochet the plarn into sleeping mats that are soft, durable, & water resistant, which is especially important for the people who sleep outdoors/on the ground.
We ask that the bags not have a lot of holes in the sides, since that is the part that’s used for the plarn. Holes in the bottoms of the bags are OK, since they are not used.
If you’d like to learn more about our group, please follow us on Facebook
. We hope everyone is safe & sound after the flooding here in central Texas. See you next weekend!
