Bibs, Blankets, Etc. Update!

This past Saturday I participated in a yard sale with the Central Foothill Mommies. It was a great way for me to meet some other moms, sell quite a bit of stuff and of course take advantage of a few good deals! :)

Two of the moms from the club surprised me with donations to the Barium Springs Home for Children. Helene gave me a stack of flannel receiving blankets....

From Helene - Conover, N.C.

....and Tammy passed along bibs, blankets and TONS of clothes!

From Tammy - Stony Point, N.C.

Thank you ladies!

The CFM had asked their members to donate items to sell at the yard sale to profit the club. All items that were left over after the sale were graciously given to me to take to Barium Springs. There were two large boxes of stuff! I sorted through it and here is what was given:

From the Central Foothills Mommies - N.C.

I was able to fit everything into one big box.

If you would still like to donate items you still have time! While this project started off as a "handmade bib & blanket drive" I will obviously take donations whether they be handmade or not. I actually called Barium Springs this afternoon to make sure that they would take a lot of the already donated items and they said "yes." Clothing, toys, household items, etc - as long as the items are in good, clean condition then they will take them!

The deadline is coming up: June 1st!
Just a few more weeks to go! If you'd like to participate just leave me a comment here with your email address and I will send you my mailing address. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
