Cindy Sokoloff has come across two ways that we can help others. She is offering to do the hard part if we can donate. Read on...
Please do not throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with Dawn soap, place them in a ziplock bag and mail to a wildlife refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud, and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment.
Here are two groups accepting donations: Appalachian Wild, PO Box 1211, Skyland, NC 28776 and Wildlife Wands, PO Box 1586, Southwick, MA 01077.
If our sisters will bring their cleaned wands to the meeting, Cindy will see that they are mailed to one of these recipients.
Hello. We are teachers in El Paso. We would like to know if anyone is interested in sending us postcards to help our students know there is plenty of good in our world. As teachers, we may only be able to say so much. We think concrete messages of support would help us calm some fears. Any thoughts?
You can send them here:
E. Flores, Hillside Elementary, 4500 Clifton Ave., El Paso, TX 79903
Teresa Garrett, Tom Lea Elementary, 4851 Marcus Uribe Dr., El Paso, TX 79934
Alejandro Escalera, Aoy Elementary School, 901 S. Campbell St., El Paso, TX 79901
We will have some postcards and at the October meeting so that you can write a message and we can mail a bunch off! It might also be something our active teaching members could do with their classes.
