We can always use forks, knives, spoons, silverware organizers, potato peelers, pot holders, and kitchen towels. Kitchen appliances like crockpots and coffee makers are handy.
Operation Move In – When our residents arrive, many have little more than a couple bags of clothes to their name. Bedding, tvs and recliners are a must. Things we need include flat screen tvs, recliners, and beds (twin & full sized). The beds need mattress covers (the kind that encases the whole mattress), new or good condition sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. Bed pillows must be NEW. Good condition or new hand towels and washcloths are always needed.
Operation Swab the Deck – Ongoing mission. We are in need of toilet bowl brushes, mops, brooms; dollar store quality is fine. Cleaning/scouring sponges and dish rags are always handy, as is dish soap. Bleach should be in manageable sized containers (quart or half gallons).
