Dorothy talked with a young boy who asked her if she could get his mom real spoons and forks. He is tired of using McDonalds plastic spoons & forks.He also asked if the family could have some blankets for Christmas.
Dorothy is planning on doing 2 projects in Camden again this year.And 1 poor section in Sicklerville.After taking a survey of the children's Christmas requests it comes out like this. The majority of boys first requests were guns,knives or arrows.Because we do not give out anything related to violence Dorothy told them they would need to think of something else.Their responses 15 boys wanted sports related gifts, such as sports cards,sports games & even sports blankets. 3 boys wanted big trucks,4 boys wanted transformers 2 toddlers wanted blocks. Total boys-24 Girls requests were dolls and crafts.Broken down Dorothy would need 25 black dolls,3 Spanish looking dolls, 2 white barbie dolls,3 crafts and 1educationel toy for toddler girl. total girls-34 (note*children are a product of their environment,do you think if these boys lived somewhere else guns,knives and arrows would of been their first request??? We ask for new toys for Christmas.The majority of these children also need gloves. TOTAL CHILDREN of 3 projects 58. Not sure how many of these requests we can fill but we will try our best with the help of Santas elves.
Besides work she tries to squeeze in sorting and delivering items to those with alot less. Past week she delivered new colored copy paper about 10 bundles .Lots of lotions, large bag of toys to the Ronald McDonald house.They appreciated it very much.Alot of their toys have been there for years and are alittle worn. She emptied a house by herself that a man told her she was free to take whatever she could use.His house is in foreclosure. Did several drop offs to 3 families struggling in Burlington Co. Did 2 drop offs in Trenton areas poor section Fed some feral cats and recieved items from a woman in Browns Mills.
Dominic from Forked River donated several large bags of clothes for girls and men. Robin from Howell donated several bags of girl clothes for family we met half way last week.The girls now will have some school clothes
The holidays are just around the corner.Please consider helping a local charity if not ours.Or give to your local food pantry. Quite a few people have charities dear to their hearts.Some give to the Veterans Association because a family member was a vet.Or maybe they lost a loved one to Cancer, so they donate to a Cancer foundation. Whatever one you choose remember you will not only be helping someone but making a differance. A positive one. If everyone thought more about others than their selves the world would be such a nicer place to live in. We have seen first hand how donations have brought tears of joy to those whom are struggling. Please consider helping someone!
We would like to thank Suzan from Plumsted & our silent volunteer for the children clothes.These items will go to good use. Also would like to thank Debbie for the 2 black dolls.Now all we need is 18 more. Hopefully we will get the 20 by Christmas. note*we have 3 black doll faces but none of us know exactly how to make dolls out of them.I never did learn to sew.Wonder if any child would notice the body is missing,lol
I just tried unsuccessfully to reply to a comment regarding donations for this most recent family - our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org - we are located in Whiting, NJ. Please email us with your contact information and Fr. John or Pat will get back to you to arrange a pick-up.
other arm.He mentioned
he had pinched nerve
in neck & back area
and would need surgery
for reuse of right arm. This cute little girl helped with items. Her hair needed brushing but mother stated all their personal belongings they lost in storage.Even brush and comb.They were only 3 weeks behind on payment for storage shed when auctioned off.
Whole family had sandals or flip flops on with socks. Children all had clothes on that appeared to big for them.
note*Children have not been going to school due to no school supplies.Happy to say we gave them school supplies,back packs and a few clothes.Thanks to everyone who donated to us.We will be putting this family on our Christmas List for 2012
Debbie read where the man who lost an eye wanted an eye patch. So she made three.And instead of me taking 3 pictures of each differant eye patch we took one picture of 3 eye patches.As you can see by Debbie modeling them
