"move in/move out"...
:: a local, neighborhood effort to supply gift baskets for people starting a new life ::
when our friend Joann told us about her and her neighbors
creating gift baskets for folks moving into housing after recovering from homelessness,
we wanted to join in.
you are most welcome to join us in supporting these folks.
1. click on the helpinghandreentry.org link above to read about ByBee Lakes Hope Center. once on their website,
scroll all the way to the bottom and look for icons that say "DONATE", and/or "DONATE PERSONAL CARE ITEMS".
use the button there to schedule a drop off + know that together, we are rooting
for a fresh start with a small something tangible that the recipient of the gift will use with gratitude.
2. click on the catholiccharitiesoregon link above to read about Kenton Womens's Village.
scroll down their front website page until you see the words "In-Kind Needs".
use the email address there to schedule a drop off, or shop their Amazon link, or volunteer!
3. look around your house or shop for any of the items listed on either website. gather them together then email me (email@example.com) to schedule a time to drop your items off to me at the hospital (PeaceHealth Southwest). I will get those items to Joann (on Hayden Island) to add to the gift baskets that will then be delivered to Kenton House + ByBee Lakes.
may all beings everywhere be happy + free.
