Monday, Nov. 23rd

An Awesome Sunday! Thank you to all of you who brought food for our Thanksgiving Meals in a Bag Sunday at ONE*! Our best estimates are that we received 58 Turkeys!!!! We will be putting meals together today for Barker High families and other schools, so I will update you on exactly how many meals are distributed. What an amazing blessing!!! I hope to post some pictures soon!

Just to update you on a few things:
  • Family really needs propane to be able to take showers and cook their food. They have about 3 small tanks (5 gal) & 1 bigger tank (25 gal.) If 4 people gave $20 for their propane, we could get all the tanks filled!
  • Also could use some dish towels and rags.
  • Money to buy toiletry items or Winco gift card, (toilet paper, dog food, etc.)

I hope you all were able to read the article in Spokesman Review this Sunday, as they talked about homeless kiddos in our schools - it definitely painted a picture of what the situation is like right now. They also noted our PTA HEART in Hand Outreach in the article for a way to help.

Again, together we can make a difference, and we are! I so appreciate your help in advance! Thank you for keeping these in need in your prayers and in your hearts during this time! And thank you for doing your part of taking care of our neighbors! Please let me know if you can help in any way.

Special Thanks to ONE for including Broadway Elementary in your Thanksgiving Meals in a Bag Event. Your thoughtfulness brought a smile to our families. The families are grateful and so am I. Have a blessed holiday! Leslie Camden Goold, School Social Worker/HEART Liaison
