Updated wish list of shelter supplies and thanks for our growing list of benefactors

Mr. Rogers always said, in times of crisis, look for the helpers. We looked and we found, and we’ll be highlighting them going forward.

Today we want to thank Mary for grocery bag full of homemade cookies. In deference to family in a high risk demographic, Mary keeps herself distanced at home. And she bakes.

She kindly offered to bake batches of cookies for the guests at the shelters. We were able to pick them up for delivery. There’s a role for everyone and homemade cookies are an appreciated treat for the guests. First, they are so tasty. Second, it’s a reminder that someone cares. That’s important. (The sign below is from Mary’s yard.)

Today we have a new list, if you’re in a position (or in possession) to help us out. You can drop off supplies (details on when and where are here) or contact us if delivery is an issue.
