More details as they are known.
otterhill and the_geoffrey
We'll make arrangement to pickup the items.
I have a pair of size 11 sneakers that are barely used (I had to have a bigger shoe to fit over my foot when I broke my ankle, and I just haven't found anyone to give them to, yet.) The right foot shoe has never been worn at all. My mother said that she has blankets. And we can try to help with personal items, like toothbrushes and such....
I dropped off several tooth brushes (I think 2 kids and 2 adult ones), tooth paste samples, and flossers to Otterhill. I didn't know what kinds of brushes/combs/shampoos they might like, so we did a gift card with it. Figured they could use the gift card for that, or whatever else they needed.
I'll see what we can do....some of the clothes I've recently expanded out of ought to fit Bud, and between Tammie and Bunky we oughta be able to come up with stuff for Dawn. The kids are harder but I'll see what we can find.
I've got clothes in the right size range for Dawn - will have to check Dave's stuff for Bud - also coats and possibly shoes. I'll ask around at work, I know a few people with teenagers/younger kids who might be willing to donate. We also have extra blankets (brand new, still packaged), sheets, towels, etc. etc.
Geoffrey, can't remember if we have your address or not - plz email to me (email@example.com) and let me know when would be a good time to drop stuff off.
Addendum, we *do* have at least one pair of jeans and a few shirts in Bud's size.
Geoffrey or Karen, please call me on the Cell Phone. Looks like I have an old number.
FWIW, the Red Cross gives some financial aid to families who have had a fire in their home. The phone number is 516-2700. I don't know if DAT was there already or not.
