2009 Plans...

hi all.

this year is all about getting back to basics. and caring for local families in need.
they are not living in shelters, but living 2 and 3 families in one apartment in hopes to make ends meet.

project one:
clean out your closets, yes! all of them... and donate all
usable clothing, baby items and household items to:

st. anthony's in menlo park
on middlefield just before 5th avenue... if driving north..
drive into the parking lot and head to the back.
signs will direct you.
open mon- fri 10-4pm.

project two:
next time you go grocery shopping, buy a couple of extra cans of beans,
packages of rice, pasta... and donate to st. anthony's, as above.

project three:
next time you go shopping, purchase a gift card, to target, to safeway,...
and mail it to: 174 spruce ave. menlo park, ca 94025.
i am starting this year, an emergency fund for single moms in need.
this fund will help support moms who need a little extra tlc. being
a single mom is challenging enough, but add in being financially challenged.
a $25 gift card can bring a smile to her face and a tear to her eye!

project four:
help with our fundraising efforts by buying and gifting flannel baby blankets.
each is $5.00! made by moms! my hope is that we can gift 100 a month! go to and use as the recipient address.
the blankets will be donated to local moms in need. our 2009 budget- $6,000,
that's it!
