More Donation Projects

This holiday season I have been mostly working on projects for donations. You may remember my post on The Giving Store Donation of wrist purses. This is the second and third batch of items that includes 48 microwave bowl holders, approximately 30 lip gloss holders, travel tissue holders, and several more wrist purses. I hope to get a few more items completed after Thanksgiving. Not all will be in the donation boxes as some are designated for others.

When I worked for the city I met a lot of wonderful and giving people who made helping people in their community their project. Some of these people work and volunteer at the local health center. The hours are long and very tiring but many continue to work long after their assigned shifts are over. They patiently help people with not only medical issues but filling out numerous forms for all things to include housing assistance, help finding day care, and locating services that are out of their area of expertise. These are unsung heroes of this little community and will be getting little packages for the holidays.

I know with my limited resources I cannot make a big difference but I can give a few people a little surprise this season and let them know they are appreciated.

Thank you for visiting our little blog today. I would love to borrow/nab your holiday giving ideas for little gifts if you would like to share.

I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Aww, Peggy! You are a true gem. 48 cozies!! Holy moly – those took a while to make (or at least the dozen I made took me a while). Those lip gloss holders are so cool! I know those volunteers will love them, and even more love that some appreciates them enough to make something special just for them. {{Hugs}} I would love to be able to volunteer to do something like that when I’m retired. My SIL has done something similar, helping to prepare taxes, pay bills, etc. Sami is one lucky puppy having such a caring and giving mom. ~smile~ Roseanne
