Thank you to all for your wonderful donations! We hope you enjoy these photos of Delivery Day

All the toiletry items and clothing have been gratefully received and are meeting the current
needs. Thank you to everyone who participates in this Mission Outreach Project.
Here is an updated list of the current needs:
Toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, disposable razors, towels, hand towel, wash cloth.
Old dish cloths or towels to be used as rags. Two card tables to play games on.
The shelter is decorated with inspirational art, including

25 Cots have been delivered in response to Director Patricia’s wish list!
Everyone at Dorothy's Place had many thanks and praise for those who supported
and donated the cots.
