As you all know I work at a women's homeless shelter. Currently we are having a serious lack of Christmas donations for our Christmas Party presents that we hand out on December 21st. We normally try to give each lady (about 285 women) a hat, glove, and scarf set, some candy, a long distance calling card, and a $5 gift card to either McDonalds or Starbucks. Sometimes we can even give them make-up samples and some hair accessories.
Unfortunately the day is only 3 days away and we are woefully short on everything. So I am writing this hoping for help. These are the things we are short on so far.
For the Christmas Party Gifts:
Starbucks or McDonald's $5 gift cards
Hair ties, barrettes, hair combs
Make-up or Perfume Samples
For the Christmas Party Meal Itself:
Snack Items such as Chips, Dips, Peanuts, or Mixed Nuts
For Christmas Day (The ladies are in all day and we don't have a way to cook):
Meat and Cheese Trays
Candy ('specially candy canes of various flavors)
If you can help, or know someone who wants to help, contact our services coordinator:

or just drop it off at: 2301 2nd Avenue (In the alley between 1st and 2nd off of Bell St.) anytime between 9am and 5pm or 5:30pm and 9pm
Thank You Everybody!
