Here is an updated list of items that we are asking for: Campbell’s chicken noodle soup in the easy open cans (due to lack of can openers), twinkies, Chef Boyardee ravioli, chocolate bars, Lever 2000 pure rain body wash, C batteries, vienna sausage, swiss miss hot chocolate, coffee cream and sugar, beef jerky, ritz crackers, chewy granola bars, triple blade razors, baked goods-brownies and cookies, cherry almond shampoo & conditioner, sleep medicine, multivitamins, powerbars, candles, and powdered Gatorade
(NOTE TO ALL: Those easy-open cans have a tendency to burst in transit, so either send them in 2 sealed plactic bags and/or send ‘real’ cans and a can opener (better idea) -Marty)
Oops. Just sent two cans of these. Hope they don’t burst. From now on I’ll double bag them.
For example, the following items are a huge hit: magazines (those of interest to 20-30 year old men and women), snacks of any kind (especially chocolate), music CDs (again, geared for younger generation), slippers, etc. I recently received one, for example that had some Burtâ€™s Bees specialty soaps and face wash, etc. That was awesome. Also, the specialty coffees and creamers are a big hit.
They are always in need of decent greeting cards to send to loved ones. The ones that are most needed are the â€œI love youâ€, â€œI miss youâ€, â€œIâ€™m thinking of youâ€ type. Iâ€™m sure we will all be making homemade ones for Valentineâ€™s day, as we have no way to buy them here. Several months ago I received a package of them from a friend who sent me a variety that were â€œhappy birthdayâ€, â€œI love youâ€, â€œI miss youâ€ type and I have been so grateful for them. I really loved receiving a package of â€œHappy Birthdayâ€ balloons. Now, every time someone has a birthday, I blow one up and brighten their day!
