A Thank You From One of Our Moms

Peaches forwarded this to me this morning ...... we do meet some of the nicest people in our work.

Hi was nice to finally meet you. I'm glad to know someone else can benefit from all that I donated and I will have more for you as I do my spring cleaning. I am so overwhelmed by the things that were given to me and I am so thankful. I only went through 2 boxes so far and I must say I was almost in tears. One of the boxes included your sneakers and I like them, so does my son he decided to put them on his little feet and clomp around the house.

Thanks again for everything and I am about to go through at least one more box as I prepare dinner.....thank you thank you thank you

Man's Best Friend Needs Help Too!

We want to thank Elaine for the wonderful donation and drop off of many LARGE bags and numerous cans of Science Diet dog food. Your donation will buy some time for families who in today's economy find they can barely afford food on their own tables. No one should ever have to give up a beloved family pet simply because thru no fault of their own, they can no longer afford to feed it. Your donation will be used to give numerous households more time to search for a long term solution. Hopefully, their situation will change before they have to relinquish their family pet.

We gladly accept pet food donations. The Reys of Hope Volunteers are all huge animal lovers, we take care of feral cats (Peaches and Ruth), do animal rescue (Pat), adopt stray cats (Susan), love dogs (Susan, Fr. John), rescue birds (Pat) - you name it, one of us has probably done it. Please contact us if you can donate pet food of any kind. We will make sure it gets to those that need it.

Some Dresses I Made for Our Kids

Here are some pictures of Easter Dresses I made and donated to some of our kids. (Someday I will figure out how to get these photos right.) I wish I could sew for them all - 2 are for sisters, the third for a "girly-girl" who likes to twirl - Peaches dropped off a dress for her that was blown off the porch before the family could retrieve it. The little girl knew a dress was coming for her and was very upset that it was gone, since it meant no Easter dress for her. I could not bear the thought and decided I would make her one. All three of these little ones received a dress, tights and shoes -

Thankfully, I just picked up a huge donation of children's clothes from my cousin and her co-workers at J&J so we have more nice things for our children. Thanks Barbara, Pat, Renee and Bonnie for all of your efforts!! Another of my favorite donors, from Little Egg Harbor, also gifted us with two bikes - I can't tell you how happy they will make a couple of our kids. Thanks, Bill!! Vince is in the garage as I write this making sure there is air in the tires since I am dropping them off today for Peaches. I also want to thank my good friend Dorcas, for a full pick-up truck of children's toys and gear and her continuing support of my efforts for the Reys of Hope!
