Community Connection - May 2020 - Week 3
COMMUNITY CONNECTION SERVING OUR COMMUNITY WITH WHAT THEY NEED
May 2020 | Vol.6 | Week 3
UPCOMING EVENT! Dates to be announced soon Last year at this time, we were hosting our first ever annual Spring Swap & Shop. We took in donations the weeks before of extra baby equipment, and then opened on a Saturday and gave it all away. It was so much fun and so many needs in the community were met! We had plans to do it again, but then...coronavirus. We kinda just figured we'd have to skip it this year. But then we saw the Community Closet having open-air events and thought, BRILLIANT! We have contacted both the City of Dallas and our building owner, and have received their blessing to hold this event in our lower parking lot! We now await the final word from the neighbors we share our building with as we want their OK, too.
Once we have that, all we'll need to do is look at a 10-day forecast and plan it for an upcoming sunny Saturday! Please spread the word that this is in the works! We are currently accepting donations of gently used baby equipment. We ask that they are:
In good working condition
Not missing parts
CLEAN - PLEASE do clean it before you donate it. Especially with COVID-19 still being a concern, we will be cleaning it again and really take the safety of our volunteers seriously, as I know you do as well.
We're looking forward to a fun and safe Second Annual Spring Swap & Shop! Glenda J. Dunaway Executive Director firstname.lastname@example.org Office: 503-623-4618 Cell: 503-999-6679
