Will you help? This is a great opportunity to share, no matter who you are. Local church groups, clubs, workplace friends and families can give back. This would be a great experience to share with your children and talk about giving back in the time of need.
The couple hope is to leave for the Gulf Coast before the end of the month, but there is a lot to do including buying the supplies and filling the buckets and then loading the truck.
Just a couple months ago Mann and Bridgman had an incredible experience delivering to Florida. Your generosity helped hundreds of families and they want to be able to pass on some more Hoosier Hospitality!
Items being collected for the hygiene buckets include: shampoo, body wash, comb and brush, band-aids, deodorant, mouth wash, toothpaste, tooth brushes, shaving cream, disposable razors, small box of tissues, washcloths and a single roll or small 4 pack of toilet paper.
The food bucket includes a small package of paper plates, plastic silverware, plastic cups, box of mac and cheese with the creamy cheese pouch, peanut butter, jelly in a plastic jar, a can of spaghetti sauce and spaghetti noodles, applesauce and or fruit cups, canned vegetables and spaghetti-O’s.
In the clean-up bucket they are looking for sponges and scrubbers, powder cleaner like comet, a bottle of multipurpose cleaner, laundry soap, fabric softener, a single roll of paper towel individually wrapped, trash bags, dish soap, gloves, scrub brush, clothes line and clothespins.
Since they are taking a semi trailer of items down, they will take GENTLY used clothes that are sorted by size and gender along with gently used furniture and working appliances.
This Saturday the semi trailer will be at River Park Square from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. accepting donations. WTCA will also accept donations during normal business hours.
If you want to make a cash donation, they will be happy to do your shopping for you! https://paypal.me/pools/c/8u461ke1d9
