Thanks for everyone who donated! Remember that donations are needed year-round and can be donated at various locations including Our place and Dandelion.

We need your blankets, sleeping bags, and warm winter gear!

Once again, we are focusing our giving efforts close to home this year by supporting the Dandelion Society  by collecting warm winter items. The Dandelion Society was founded by Rev. Al Tysick. Reverend Al has been working with the homeless for 40 years and was one of the primary founders of “Our Place”. He started the Dandelion Society in 2011 in an effort to provide care and support for people in our community who are unable to access even basic care and support from places like Our Place.

Donate any and all of the following items at Hemma before December 31st. Please ensure they are either new, or clean and in excellent condition. Several of these items are needed NOW and will be donated immediately directly to those in need. Please note – the emphasis is on blankets, sleeping bags, and warm coats.

Sleeping Bags
Rain Coats
Warm Coats
Mittens, Gloves, Hats, Scarves
NEW Socks.

Thank you!!
