First of all, I want to take a second and say thank you to anyone who has brought in items for the Toy Drive that we are having! The box is FULL and it warms my heart to be a part of a commUNITY that is so caring and compassionate :)
We received an update from Habitat for Humanity regarding the Toy Drive and they are beyond excited to be getting this support, but they informed us they currently have one family that is considered homeless by state standards and in need of home items.
That being said, we will be adding a NEEDS portion to our Cadre Cares initiative for the holiday.
The family has made a point to say that anything helps, but their specific list of needs is below:
Pots and pans
Mattresses (for all)
They have kids, as well, who are in need of clothes in the following sizes:
Girls Pants - size 8 juniors and shirt size medium juniors; Boots - size 9
Jewelry (necklaces and rings)
Men's pants size 30, shirt size small (men’s)
Girls Pants size 14 and shirt size large (kids)
Pants size 14/16 and shirts size XL (kids)
Baby boy clothes, diaper bag, car seat, and diapers
The drive is going on until this SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15th - items can be dropped off in the grey box by the front desk and will be collected post-Christmas party on Saturday night, so if anyone would like to bring something to the party you are more than welcome to do so!
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to reach out and I will be happy to answer them!
