Looking for supplies

I am collecting clear plastic lids for a holiday project at home. If anyone has some of these collecting dust at home, I would love them. Big or small it doesn’t matter. Even labels I can scrub off. Here is a picture of what I’d like to do with them.

Many Thanks, Kelly


Staff Christmas Giving

I was thinking aloud in front of a few staff members and wasn’t sure if all staff were still interested in making a group donation to a local charity in lieu of small gifts to one another. To my knowledge no firm decision had been made for this year.
Would everyone like to make a collective donation?
Suggestions for a local charity?
As a reminder there is no minimum/maximum level of donation. Make a donation to your ability.

and, We’re back!
