We had such an overwhelming response from a lot of you the past couple of years and we are certain that we can lean on you for support in sponsoring these families this year as well!
I have been in contact with both families and below are their "Wish Lists". For our first family, they have needs which are immediate and therefore cannot wait until we deliver everything to them before Christmas. Therefore, if you can help out with these needs, then please contact me ASAP as I plan on making a trip to their home this Wednesday (November 20th).
If any of you have gently used items that you wish to donate, we will gladly take them as well as both families will make good use out of them for sure!
As in the past, you can drop off your donations to me directly at 29 Bristol Avenue, Brampton (905.459.1735) anytime – just give me the heads up so I will know when to expect you. Also, if it is easier for you, you can bring any donations you may have to any Twins Plus event. We have a couple of events coming up in the next couple of weeks being our Coffee Night next Friday, November 29th and our Annual Christmas Party on December 1st, and I will be at both events accepting donations as well!
I would like to have all the items ready to be delivered by Friday December 20th, 2013 in plenty to time to get them under the tree!
Being so close to Christmas, I know that this may seem like an added expense, however, a little goes a long way, especially when it means putting a bright smile on someone's face Christmas morning!
Thank you for your continued support!
