Donations in – receiving blankets, stuffed toys, toothbrushes…By
What a relief – we LOVE getting the donations in for the sick and needy. When our shelves get bare as donations are all distributed, we take a deep breath in and say a heartfelt prayer that before the next request for help comes in there will be donations to fill them…and then we hit the work room and start sewing, knitting, quilting and crocheting like mad!
This weekend we received beautiful receiving blankets, stuffed toys, toothbrushes, floss, burial gowns, household goods, baby clothing, toys, books, yarn, fabric, sewing supplies, batting, baby cocoons, totes and waterbottles.
We are delighted to share that the donations are already distributed and the sewing supplies used to make more.
Thank you so much for your love and sharing. God has commanded us to be a blessing to each other and we joyfully obey his will in bringing relief to the sick and needy through sharing our time, talents, love and funds.
Think about all the blessings you have and what you would do if they were all gone. The tornado victims were stripped of everything they had in a very short time. Gone were the beds and warm bedding, clothing and hygiene items, no longer there were the children’s toys, books to read or even a high chair to feed the baby in.
Can you really enjoy what you have when you know others are suffering and have lack? Yes, you can, but only if you share what you don’t need or want with them.
De-clutter your home for a good cause. It lightens your load as we don’t really own possessions, they are just on loan from God and we are stewards, but if we have too many possessions – they own us as we lose energy and time shuffling them from place to place with no real need for them.
If you are saving things for a rainy day, I have to tell you it’s pouring right now for those in need. Give relief through sharing. Put three boxes down as you work to clear your home. One for putting away, one for throwing out and one for charity.
When the charity box is full, put a label on it and send it to:
6078 Lundy Rd,
Include your name, email address and mailing address so we can send you a tax deductible receipt for your kind and much needed donation.
There isn’t anything we don’t take – all is needed as we handle requests for assistance from all walks of life – hospitals, crisis centers, homeless shelters, refugee centers, animal shelters and individuals who need help. Items should be clean, new or gently used.
May you all have a wonderful week and enjoy all God has given you.
