FOLKS THIS IS GREAT! WE'VE DONE WELL WITH THE ITEMS ON THE LIST - ALL WE REALLY NEED IS SNOWPANTS AND BOOTS - PLEASE HELP US OUT! THANKS!
UPDATED FOR YOUR SHOPPING CONVENIENCE ON 12/15/09
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE SO FAR WHO HAS DONATED AN ITEM OR CASH! KEEP IT COMING AND WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US ON 12/19 FOR A WRAPPING PARTY!
So, I really wanted us as a shop community to do something special this year to help folks who might not have such a great holiday. Wendy volunteers in a 2nd grade classroom at Dike Newell, with a wonderful teacher, Sue Michaud, with whom I used to work. Phew - now that we have that straight. The staff at DN adopted some families for the holidays and we asked if we could as well! We have been given a wonderful little family and I'm hoping you'll help me spoil them rotten!
So, here's the specifics. I have a wish list from Mom, Daughter #1, Son, and Daughter #2. I will list each item here as well as on a tree in the shop. If you choose something, either in shop or through an email, I will mark it on the list here and remove it from the tree. If you'd like to donate cash to help us purchase the items on the list, that would be welcome also. We will accept unwrapped items through Friday 12/18 and on Saturday 12/19 we hope you'll join us for a fun wrapping party. Wendy will deliver all the goodies to Dike Newell on Monday 12/21.

I've highlighted in pink the items already spoken for. Obviously they can use more than one pair of socks and other clothes, so don't worry if they're already marked and that's what you want to get. Please help us! Anything handmade would also be welcome. I think I have a quilt for each person (might need one for the little boy). Please call with any questions or if you'd like to claim an item - or email to claim at item too. THANK YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!
