I apologize for the late nature of this post. Tiffany and I both had vacations staggered one after the other, right after our collection. So, here it is.
First off, THANK YOU. We think you rock.
We were so pleased with how many of your dropped off items at our park get-together and before/after the drop-off. We filled the back of an entire manly-man truck. (Which was it's own comical site as Miss Girly Girl Tiffany manned up to drive the behemoth)
I'm not sure there's a good way to quantify how much we collected. It was definitely substantial. And it made me feel extremely grateful. We filled up a good portion of Tiffany's basement. (and thanks to her for acting as the U-Haul and storage unit)
We recently sorted through all of the items so that we could ready the drop-off for Rescue Haven, The Road Home, and Women in Jeopardy. We had a huge range of items - from household goods to brand-spanking new baby diapers.
As I loaded my husband's Toyota 4Runner with the items and subsequently dropped off at my two destinations (The Road Home and the YWCA), I was overwhelmed by your generosity and by the good fortune that we were able to add a little more kindness to the world.
All the institutions we donated to also expressed their thank-yous and great amazement at your generosity. Just at the YWCA alone, they currently had 105 women and children in immediate crisis, as well as other families in transition.
You made a difference. Mothers will have not only the things they need, but a few fun extras as well.
To the next donation! Thank you again for all you do.
