Copied from a friend who needs help

Just to let you all know, I hate doing this, but it is kind of necessary....

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
Calling Cards
Hair ties, barrettes, hair combs
Make-up or Perfume Samples

For the Christmas Party Meal Itself:
Sparkling Cider
Pies/Cakes/Cookies
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
Crackers
Chips, Dips
Fresh Fruits
Candy ('specially candy canes of various flavors)

If you can help, or know someone who wants to help, contact our services coordinator:

Mykel Montgomery- Noel House Programs Services Coordinator
441-3210 ext 200
mykel@noelhouse.org
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!
