While I have been a little under the weather the last couple of months, our little group has continued to be very busy and we have received so many wonderful contributions! I am so very thankful for each and everyone who takes the time to create, pack up and deliver the beautiful treasures we receive. The best part of what we do is getting them out to those who need these caring gifts. Our members are what keep this chapter afloat and we so appreciate all that you do!!
We have new pictures of most of what we have received during the last couple of months - still have a few more things to add. Check them out when you get a minute - you will be impressed by the talents and generosity of those who support the BPSC! Our photo album is located here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/binkypatrolsc/. So many ideas, colors and imagination that come together to make the children feel loved and special.
We will be sending out our first package to the Daybreak Crisis Pregnancy Center here in Columbia. This is a wonderful organization to assist young women with unplanned pregnancy. The items we send are used as incentives and care packages. Thanks so much to Andrea for suggesting we contact this group.
We also finally have a good supply of boy blankets which will allow us to send a package to The Boys Home in SC. This is very exciting and we can't wait to get them off in the mail.
The most important thing we can express here is there is no donation that is too small, one pair of socks, one new toothbrush, fabric, anything you feel would be useful, will be put to work. There is no need for perfection - most of the items I create have mistakes but I know in my heart that the recipient will know the gift was made in love and just for them.
