"A Family Place" shelter needs winter clothing, bedding

I just received an e-mail from "A Family Place" shelter requesting donations of blankets, winter clothing and sleeping bags for children and adults. Residents are not given blankets when they move in; many go without. Please keep the shelter in mind as you sort through your closets preparing for the change of season. Items should be clean (there are no laundry facilities at the shelter) and in decent condition.
A special "thank you" to all who donated so generously during the past month. We took three van loads of bikes, clothing, dishes, baby swings, toys, books, games and even some coats and a blanket or two. You made a lot of people happy!
If you have blankets and winter clothing, feel free to call us at 567-5649.
