Matt Loynachan has provided us with an update on Room In the Inn. Here’s what’s going on and an update on where we can use more help.
1. Because of our high sack lunch counts these past few months, our inventory of granola bars and applesauce is running low. If you are able pick up some items next time you are shopping, it would be appreciated. Please save your receipts and turn them in for reimbursement. If you have any questions, please contact Matt or Mike.
2. PNS is in need of sheets, towels and blankets. Sheets and blankets should be twin size. Gently used and laundered is fine. We will continue to collect these items in the bin outside the office door, and we will deliver them to PNS on our sack lunch delivery dates.
3. Even though RITI has finished for the winter session, we are still collecting men’s washable pants and jeans for our guests. While we welcome all sizes, we are particularly in need of larger size pants (36-42 waist).
We also get a lot of requests for small backpacks and rolling suitcases and hooded sweatshirts and tennis shoes. We especially need shoes sizes 11-14.
Our rep. at the Presbyterian Night Shelter has even expressed the need for larger shoe sizes.
Please place your donations in the bin outside the church office. If you have any questions, please contact Matt.
4. Please remember that RITI will start back up in July. If you would like to know how to participate this during the summer session, please contact Mike for more details.
