We will be taking donations until Thursday February 11th !! **Let us know if you need a pickup. Our goal is about 200 cards that will be delivered to people experiencing homelessness staying in hotels receiving packings from United Way !  If you swing by Dollar Tree they have some with treats inside that you can personalize with a note like: From: "Your Name" To" "A Great Person" etc. or get the kiddos involved and make them more personalized!!
