We will meet this Saturday, April 13, starting at 9 AM at Trinity Gospel Church gym (901 Davis Blvd. Sikeston, MO) to get items marked and stickers put on for Spring Clean 2013 on April 20. With the help of a couple friends, Diane L and LaRae L, we have marked and prepared close to 1000 heavier items here at my garage. We still will have 8000 items to mark this Saturday. If you can help u,s please come on out. Even if just for an hour or so it would be a great help to us. If you need directions, please message or email me through our Contact Us page and I will send you directions.
We’re so thankful for the items donated at Paul’s Christian Book Store, 114 E. Front, Sikeston, MO this past week. We also have received some money donations, but we are still way below our goal. If you would like to help, you can donate online through PayPal or mail a donation to the address on our Contact Us page as well.
We are looking forward to Spring Clean 2013 on April 20 starting at 8 AM. We will deliver more than 300 baskets to senior citizens and families in need in East Prairie, Charleston, New Madrid, Howardville, Lilbourn, Bernie, Parma and Dexter. We will meet at the UPS terminal at 117 Larcel Dr., Sikeston, MO where we will fill the baskets and load them onto UPS trucks to deliver to the towns. Volunteers will follow in their own vehicles to the town/area they would like to help in.
We will be delivering more baskets on this one day than the TOTAL number of baskets that we have delivered since the start of LBFOL in September 2011.
We are so thankful to all who have helped us and are helping us meet the needs of our senior citizens and families who are in need of the “extras” in their lives. To learn more about what we mean by “extras” check out our How Did It Start page.
We have the opportunity to purchase LBFOL T-shirts for a fundraiser. If you would be interested in purchasing one, they would cost $16 up to XL and $18 for 2XL or larger. We are trying to get an idea how many would be interested in purchasing one before we order them.
Thank you again to all who have and are helping us. I know you will be blessed!
