A Weekend of Blessings

Tomorrow is our last day to take donations for the NJ soldiers and for the woman's shelter.  Our baskets for the soldiers are overflowing and the panties, well let's just say the donations are getting there!  We're hoping for more tomorrow.

Twenty five bags of goodies in the trunk of my car!
We've been collecting non perishables and other things off the ARMS wish list for a couple of weeks and today had our biggest donation yet.  A woman called and wanted to know if she could drop off 25 bags of donations today?  Could she?  Was she kidding?  OF COURSE she could.  She came while I was doing a class so I didn't get to see who it was, hopefully Debbie or Holli got her name!, but she told Jim that she'd had a fundraiser and had taken the money, gone to ShopRite and purchased 25 bags of goodies with it.  That is truly amazing.  

Two baskets overflow by the cutting table.

Here are the baskets full of more stuff waiting to be donated on Tues.  
Pantie Raid donations as of Friday night

This is the Pantie Raid basket on Friday night when we closed.  It was a bit more full when we closed today (Saturday).  The fat quarters behind the basket are waiting to go home with donors.  Stop in tomorrow!

We thank each and everyone of you who have donated to the ARMS effort for NJ soldiers and also to the Pantie Raid for Dottie's House.  We appreciate your thoughtfulness and caring for those in need.

Till next time.
