Here is an update on the fund raising event this coming weekend June 27-28. We will be selling popcorn, peanuts, cotton candy, sodas, water, T-shirts, Silly String, necklace pendants and much more. We have Carnival games (balloon pop, pick a duck and spin the wheel) to win prizes for the kids. We will have a 50/50 drawing with half of the money going to Laundry Baskets Full of Love, we also will have several raffles with $1.00 ticket entry for JD toy tractor, 2-Case IHC toy construction tractors, 2-paintings, Scentsy basket, a Thirty-One car detail basket, a Buckhead Betties beach bag with accessories, food gift certificates, several hair salon gift certificates and much much more. We also will have a few of the $10.00 raffle tickets for the Henry Silver Eagle 22 rifle and one hundred shells. You don’t want to miss out on the fun and it is a great way to support Laundry Baskets Full of Love. For updated information you can check out our face book page or our two event pages.

We also delivered baskets #1126-1132 over the last 2 weeks. Thank you so much to DeAnna, Diane, LaRae, LaNell and SaDonna for helping us get those to some grateful families. We also received a message from one of the ladies who helps us get the baskets to the senior citizens:
So many time we unintentionally become accustomed and take for granted the blessings that have been bestowed on us. Each month Marilyn faithfully brings laundry basket supplies to my office to be given to the Foster Grandparents (a senior citizens group that helps with the Head Start children at school). So many of these senior citizens live on less than $8,000. a year so it is truly a thrill for them to even get a bottle of bleach that they do not have to pay for. It is only through God’s grace that we are not in the same position. Every month we have a drawing and one of the Grandparents will receive a full basket. Today one of the Grandmothers won a basket and she called me to tell me how excited they were when they began to take the things out of the bag. Laundry detergent! Soap! Cleaner! Denture Cleaning Supplies!! My Goodness…BLEACH!!!!! She said her husband had tears come to his eyes…they were so thankful. They were thrilled! How long has it been since we have been so excited about such simple everyday items? “Little is Much When God Is In It” It blesses me to see these seniors so thrilled. I am one of the fortunate ones that is privileged to hear the feedback from some of the recipients of LBFOL. SaDonna T. Sikeston, MO
