We made gift bags which included either coloring books, puzzle books, crayons, colored pencils, playing cards, candy, popcorn, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, playdoh, nutrigrain bars, crackers, water, juice, chips. All for under $5 per bag. We also put a letter in them thanking them for working with us, giving all our contact information again, and any community or online resources that could help during this time. -Jennifer, Clear Springs

Bob Martineau had a great time delivering goodie bags to Colony Square for residents. Since there’s no March Madness on TV to keep him entertained, he found this a great replacement!
Tamakieta at Southside Manor made goodie bags for all of her residents that contained the following: 1 dove bar soap, 1 bottle hand soap, microwave popcorn, pocket napkins, 3 juice or chocolate milk packs, cheese and crackers packs, noodle packs, crayon and book packets with stickers.
Assembling the goodie bags for our residents was fun! All you need is an assembly line that moves you right along! 140 bags all sprayed and ready! -Janet, Harriman Gardens
