The intention of the committee's/chair of committee is not that these ladies are the only ones doing this particular activity, anyone can jump in and help wherever, but these are the folks who will be most active on that committee and be part of organizing, taking charge when the chair is not available, etc…..volunteers can offer to do any of the activities of the committees at any time. For example, I will still be sending out requests for help at set-ups to all of you great volunteers and Nancy will continue to send out Bin request emails.
Here is a little recap of the meeting plus scroll on through to the end to see a few photos from recent set-ups.
Karen put together a great shopping source list with the stores she has found to have great value plus average price range. We will create a PDF and make sure you all have copies. It is a terrific resource and helps give you a good price guideline. Of course you can shop anywhere when it comes to a straight donation, but when it comes to using TWC funds, we go for best value for our dollar. Karen and I have taken to online ordering, as well. Feel free to do so, if the price is right, and you can arrange to have it delivered to yourself, Karen or me. If you are not sure if it is a bargain or not, you can contact Teresa Rosati-Royer, Karen or me and ask. We are pretty good at knowing the best prices in town! Be sure to save ALL receipts. In order to be reimbursed and to keep all accounting in order for Community Partners, those receipts are necessary.
Many thanks, as always, to Kelly Brumfield Woods at the Topanga Farmer's Market for her continued support of TWC.
Here are a couple of before and after pictures that should make you smile!
Here are a couple of before and after pictures that should make you smile! Paulette's good friend, Marlo, has made some lovely donations to TWC, one of which is this doll. Unfortunately, this beauty had been through some hard times (it's never easy when your mother is a child!) and needed some new hair so Karen and her neighbor, Elsie Stenson, got to work. Elsie has helped before on some doll rehab projects and she is one talented lady. I am now referring to this doll as Dolly...she has kind of a Southern vibe to me with that big hair...why I just expect her to break into song any minute. Is she not gorgeous now?!
