We sincerely appreciate the offers for help and assistance. We currently need new children’s clothes, new children’s gloves and hats, winter coats of all sizes, warm gloves for all ages, new children’s tennis shoes, non-perishable food items, laundry detergent, personal hygiene items, school supplies, men’s boots, shovels and rakes, water hoses, work gloves, mops and brooms, and can openers.
