Thank you to everyone who helped and donated to our clothing and household goods drive that just wrapped up yesterday (May 31). It was a huge success, here are the totals:
12,376 pounds of soft goods/clothing turned in yesterday
1102 pounds of soft goods/clothing turned in last week
439 pounds of hard goods, books, household items
Total = 13,917 pounds!!!!
Value Village will be giving SCM just over $2700, that will be put to good use right away on our programs to help refugees in Jordan. The money will go to the Ramadan Food Drive to provide food for the refugee families. $31 buys a box of staples and a small amount of meat to feed one family for a month.
Thank you to all of our drop off locations: MAPS/MCRC in Redmond, Masjid Dar al-Arqam in Lynnwood, and Miro Tea in Ballard. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help load, drive, unload the trucks!
And thank you to Value Village for having this program that helps us raise much needed funds! They are a pleasure to work with and Bernice is always so helpful!
