Personal Care Items Donated All Year Long

Look at this fabulous donation of personal care items.  Soap, shampoo, razors, hand cleaners, cream, deodorant and more!!  Many thanks Laura J for this thoughtful donation.  You can see she's also included hand warmers.  Very nice.  Laura's donation is a combination of items she's purchased and items she's collected from various hotels.  Well done.

This completes her donation....scroll back folks if you missed the first portion of her generous donation.

Again, Special thanks Laura for delivering this right to my house.  I enjoyed our visit.

Folks as you know, we collect and donate all year long, though some items are stocked piled to be ready when weather becomes an issue.  However, personal care items are actually needed and used all year long, so please as you're beginning to plan your summer vacations,please keep that in mind.  Nabbing the items from the hotels is a wonderful and easy way to donate.  AND.......do tell your friends, who may not be knitters or crocheters, this is a good way for them to get involved.

  1. Nice personal care goodies Laura J. That was a nice selection that you sent.

  2. Great gifts for the homeless and needy. It makes me think, is there ever excess stuff that hotels just throw out? Would they think of donating then?


PLEASE...Leave your name and URL of your blog, NOT Google+ Profile. I'm can't return the favor of a blog visit if you leave Google+ !!!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
