Emily has also included some personal care items, AND batteries. Folks batteries are always needed by those living out in the elements for things like flashlights; though it's not something I've asked for in the past. Batteries are heavy and I was concerned about the weight issues and it making postage more costly; but.........they are indeed an item that is needed and appreciated.
Many thanks Emily, please keep up the good work.

Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.
Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items. Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's. Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.
