There Are 3 BLUE BINS Inna ROW Out There...
Not everyone is aware that there are three blue bushel
buckets under and beside the Greeter's Table in the lobby. Two
hide under the table, one is closer to the wall next to the
lift. Anything under the table is bound for Area Interfaith
Outreach, and will be gathered up by church volunteers, usually
on Wed. morning, and taken down Broadway to the food
pantry. Contributions of shelf-stable groceries (unopened and
within date) will go onto the shelves down there, and will likely be
gone by the time the pantry closes on Friday. People also look for
non-food items like cleaning supplies and personal care items
(soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, etc.) which cannot be
purchased with food stamps. One Less Worry, for whom the third
blue bin is intended, exists to supply some of those personal care
items, originally just tampons and pads for women, but now
bladder pads, and toilet paper for every household. OLW has also
committed to making sure every AIO household gets a choice of
either bar soap or toothpaste each month, along with 1 roll of TP
per person in the home that month.
So, whenever you're shopping, pick up an extra item to stock the
shelves. AIO families get one trip a month, and the amount they
get to take home depends on how much inventory there is to go
around. Food prices have definitely risen in recent
months. Everything you can contribute is very welcome. Meals in
a can (hearty soups and their kin) are in high demand right
now Questiosn? Ask Cathy Baker (596
6865, firstname.lastname@example.org). And consider volunteering -- you
will be doing important work.
