Today I spent a little bit of time at Mary’s Place here in Seattle. If you aren’t familiar with them they do amazing work: one of the only shelters that houses whole families (women with children especially), provides day time services, education, library access, counseling, healthcare, childcare & most importantly a path to a home for families.
They are in desperate need of boys clothing: especially an immediate need for boys size 6 shoes. They also need the basics in sample sizes of toiletries (think hotel shampoo, makeup & skin care samples, sanitary supplies etc). If you have used clothing, samples of toiletries you don’t need, household items to furnish a new apartment etc I’m happy to help.
I can pick up your gently used items or samples and take them to Mary’s place and provide you with a tax deductible receipt. Or I can provide you with the contact person at Mary’s Place and you can arrange drop off or even pick up.
Please share this email with your network of friends. Let’s get these kids set up with some clothes, their parents with some toiletries, and maybe even with some furnishings as Mary’s Place expands their shelters & places people in homes to call their own.
