We are listing here needs that are relevent to our guests rather than houselhold items such as paper towels, dish soap, etc, which we can purchase at Costco., Starting and maintaining a garden, and learnig canning and food preservation tips are wonderful skills that can last a lifetime. Many of our younger guests have not learned these skills and this is an opportune time to pitch in and get this started for them.
The other iitems I am listed here, such as haircuts and movie and fair passes, are 'extra' expenses for the poor. Things that folks won't neccesarily get to do because of being economically without. I know this from personal experience so it is greatly appreciated any help you can give. Thank you!
