It’s June, and our 3rd Annual Bra Drive is in full swing! Bras aren’t a commonly donated item, but at least one person asks for one every month at our giveaways. Do you have one or two in your dresser that don’t fit? Don’t throw them away – help support the ladies in our community!
While you’re looking for bras, you might find even more items that you’re not using! This month, we are completely out of nail clippers, sunscreen, men’s underwear, men’s socks, lip balm, and cold packs. We also have many more items on our green light list. Please visit our What Do We Need page to find out what staples we do (and don’t) need. A complete list of items that we accept can be found on our Donate page.
Our Amazon wish list has many of our staples (and more!). There are lots of options at several different price points. $10 can make a difference in several people’s lives!
Do you have a donation for us?
As you may have seen on our Donate page or on Facebook, our drop off location is temporarily closed. We’re not sure when it’ll reopen, so for now, we’re asking that you email our donations coordinator to make pick up or drop off arrangements. We’ll let you know as soon as we have a drop off location available again. Thanks for your patience!
It’s Gettin’ Knotty time!
If you have yarn (and more yarn) to spare, create something for someone in need! ATXHAW’s Gettin’ Knotty group makes cotton washcloths that are handed out at each of our monthly giveaways. They also create hats & scarves, which are put away for the cold weather months. We’re looking for more people to knit & crochet for a good cause – could one of those people be you?
If you’d like to find out more, come to Gettin’ Knotty’s meetup this Thursday evening! The group will meet from 7 PM to 10 PM in the cafe at Barnes & Noble in the Arboretum.
Thank you for reading! We hope you are having a fantastic summer so far. See you on the 17th!
