Loch Raven Haven Donations

Happy 2019 to all of our Loch Raven Haven donors!  I want to personally thank everyone who was involved in our holiday project this past December!  Every year my garage is filled with generous gifts that are distributed to needy families in our Loch Raven High School community.  I was fortunate enough to deliver gifts to ten families this year and it was hearwarming and rewarding to be able to bring joy (along with your very thoughtful gifts) to needy families.  There were hugs all around! 

It's been a few months since the Sign Up Genius has been updated.  You can always log on to see the list of what we always stock in the room, but it's these email blasts that provide me the opportunity to let you know what is most needed in the room.  As you may already know, we have been stocking toiletries (as well as scarves, hats and even socks) in the Guidance office and school supplies in the main office....available to any student in need.  These items fly off the shelves, so here's a quick list of what is needed on a regular basis (and many of these items can be found at the Dollar Tree)....lip balm, small hand lotions, trial size hand sanitizers and tissues, facial wipes, deodorant, toothbrushes & toothpaste, trial size mouthwash, dental floss, small body wash, plastic toothbrush holders, plastic soap containers, umbrellas, mechanical pencils, pens, pencil cases.  We also stock the Guidance Counselors and Office Manager with Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars.

Please check out the Sign Up Genius for the full list of items that we stock in the room...it's a pretty extensive list, but we try to anticipate the needs of students and their families.  Sometimes it just takes a quick look around our own house to see what we may take for grated as a staple, but that someone on a fixed income may not be able to afford.  We stock cleaning supplies, food, bedding (we currently have a request for Queen and Twin size sheets and bedding), clothing, shoes, purses, luggage and travel bags, jewelry, pet supplies, room decorations, backpacks and school supplies and much much more!

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!!
