Think of that ton of plush animals gathering dust in your young one’s room. There’s too many to count, and they’re just too cute to trash. Besides, Grandma and Grandpa spent a lot of money on those.
When Junior’s finally ready to let some go, there’s a perfect place to donate them and help someone in need.
Family Promise (a fabulous Monroe County organization that helps homeless families get back on their feet) is having a donation drive on Thursday, June 6. The list includes (in all sizes, for all ages): clothing, belts, handbags, ties, hats, gloves, coats, towels, sheets, blankets and stuffed animals. Donated shoes need to be bagged separately. Items should be clean and in usable condition and securely tied in strong plastic bags.
Bring your plushes (and whatever else you can donate) to Faith United Methodist Church at 1160 Clause Drive, Stroudsburg (that’s in the neighborhood behind Hughes Library, off Route 611). Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. that day.
For information, contact Family Promise at 570-420-8589 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
