Loch Raven Network

Loch Raven Haven Donations

School has been in session for several weeks now and the staff at LRHS have been taking a number of students and their families to the room, which we are happy to report has expanded! The space that we used to share with the Saturday School staff is now completely ours!  We've added additional clothing racks and shelving units, making the room feel more like a small store where we continually provide students and families with clothing and shoes, food, toiletries, bedding and towels, backpacks, luggage, school supplies, pet supplies and so much more!  One stop shopping!  Although I rarely get to see students use the room, I do notice when items are taken.  I smiled today when I went to the room and noticed that a huge stuffed ape, which was donated only a week ago, was gone!  I'm sure that fun donation made someone's day! 

We also have some other news to report....the school social worker, Caryn Putchat, contacted me about changing the name from Room of Support to Loch Raven Haven or The Haven for short!  The best part of the proposed name change is that it came from a student who currently uses the room!  

As always, I want to thank everyone who continually donates to the students at LRHS!  Although we appreciate donations taken from the detailed list on the Sign Up Genius, many of you have asked for a list of "must have" items that we just can't seem to keep stocked in the room.  The items that we currently are in need of include single toothbrushes, trial size toothpaste, trial size mouthwash, hand lotion, nail clippers, facial wipes (Dollar Tree), deodorants, small hand sanitizers and tissues, lip balm, umbrellas (desperately need), mechanical pencils, dividers for binders and ear buds (we are currently out).  Thank you!!!

I am also looking for volunteers to help with our upcoming donation drive as well as regular volunteers who can help shelve donations in the room once a month or even once every two months.  If you are interested in learning how you can help, please send me an email. 

Donations can be dropped off at LRHS in the main office to the attention of Caryn Putchat or if it's more convenient, you can drop off your donations on my front porch at 6 Waller Court, only blocks away from the school. 

If you ever have any questions or know of someone who would like to be put on the Sign Up Genius email list, or if you no longer want to receive these notifications, please let me know.  My email is [email protected]  Thanks for your support!!
