Hi Guild Members, and a Happy New Year to you!!! Wednesday is our meeting night and I was wondering, as usual, if anyone would have items to spare for the rooming house on Carleton Street. I will bring my truck and park it by the door. On the wish list are any and all of the following...kitchen items, anything from small appliances, to gadgets, to food items, mugs, dishes, utensils, dish towels, dish cloths, leftover cleaners, mops, brooms. In other words anything from the kitchen that you don't want or need any more. Food that is good, even if it is opened, is very much welcome! You may want to check your bathroom for any toiletries, even partially used ones. Towels would also be very welcome! Check your linen closet for sheets, pillows, cushions, pillow cases and blankets which you don't use. Enjoy more space while helping someone who would be delighted to suddenly have a bed completely made up!! I would also like small lamps, small tables or stands and kitchen style wooden chairs to use in the bedrooms. The need is always there and due to the ever changing renters, we do not foresee a time when these items will not be needed. All I'm asking for are things that you would be disposing of anyway...so please, bring them to the meeting on Wednesday night or start a collection for a later date. I THANK EVERYONE FOR THE GREAT SUPPORT WHICH I'VE RECEIVED OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS. THANKS TO VERY CARING AND GENEROUS FRIENDS, PEOPLE HAVE HAD SOME SMALL COMFORTS. IT IS SOMETIMES HARD TO REMEMBER THAT POVERTY DOESN'T END AND THAT THIS EFFORT WILL BE ONGOING. MANY MANY THANKS! Cecile
