Don’t let the rain stop you – it’s not stopping Mary Ellen and Lucas (and Libby, who was off on an errand when we stopped by) from collecting essential items for women at the City of Joy, until 2 pm today on the south side of the parking lot at 44th/Alaska (best known as the Farmers’ Market lot). Here again is our preview explaining what this is all about; here again is the list of what’s needed:
* The preference is for new items (definitely make-up, toiletries and skin care products.) Gently used items are also greatly appreciated.
Small garden shovels
Sewing supplies – thread, buttons, needles, scissors, embroidery thread
Skirts, tops, & light pants (all sizes) NOTE: It is hot & humid in Congo. We need clothes in bright colors and light fabrics. NOT Seattle clothes! ☺
Sneakers (size 7-10)
Socks (bright colors to fit shoe size 7-10)
Underwear & bras (all sizes)
Toiletries & Personal Care
Towels – bath, hand and wash cloths (bright colors)
Anything you can spare, one item or dozens, will help fill the truck!
