Some Thoughts






Yes, I am still around and I hope 
you are too!!!

It is that time of year--so much 
going on.

As most of you know, yesterday 
was "Giving Tuesday." The day 
that we are asked to "give" to 
our favorite charity.

Today I would like to suggest 
other recipients for our giving 
this holiday season.

Animal shelters--old towels and
blankets

Women's shelters--toiletries, 
women's and children's clothing.
Plus size clothing for women is
usually in high need, books and
art supplies for the kids. Please
check with your local shelter
for their "needs" list.

Homeless shelters-Again
check with those in our 
area for their particular 
needs.
Usually clothes, socks
shoes and toiletries are
a high need.

Local libraries usually have 
book donation drop offs 

Check with your local
child care centers and
elementary schools to 
see what they are in 
need of. 
Small centers usually 
are in need of art 
supplies and classroom 
supplies etc.

Last but not least---
Those RED KETTLES
that are seen all over at 
this time of year.
Mr.Ken and I get the biggest
kick out of dropping our dollars 
into the kettles we see.
If you are feeling really generous
buy the bell ringer a cup of coffee
or hot chocolate, they'll appreciate 
it-especially if it cold.

Take the time to give when and
where you can. Someone you
don't know will thank you!!!!

  1. Actually, I didn't know about "giving Tuesday." I do however have a couple of bags ready for donation, and got to pick three names off of the local Angel tree. Fun stuff! :)

    1. Donations of any kind are good.
      We have gotten angels also, now we do
      for families at my school.

  2. All good causes, Melinda! We volunteer at our local food pantry and donate to some other charities.

  4. Yes we love donations at our local library. We also have a giving tree that I contribute to pretty much every year. Thanks for the suggestions.
