  1. I would like to help fulfill some of the items needed on your wish list.
    Can you please provide me with a March items list.

    Do you accept donated clothes for children and business attire for women?

    I like many of my co-workers will be doing some spring cleaning, starting with our closets.
    We have children of all ages and would like to donate clothes to those that are in need versus donating them to the Goodwill.

    I’m sure we may have extra blankets, comforters and sheets if you can use them as well.

    Please let me know if these would be some additional items we can help with.

    Thank you,

    Valerie Vigil

    • Dear Valerie,

  2. Is May 23rd available for preparing/serving a Sunday meal to your guests?
    Also- We are interested in Adopting a room and freshening it up with curtains, comforters, etc… Can you tell me more about that?
