The list....

Here's the list of needs that immediately came to my head. This is what I ran out and got when we moved into our apartment in August! We are super lucky we have a van and can afford to do so.
  • broom
  • mop
  • mop bucket
  • dustpan
  • trash cans (think kitchen and bathroom)
  • coffee maker
  • hair dryers
  • iron
  • ironing board
  • toaster
  • toilet paper
  • paper towels
  • napkins
  • cleaning supplies (think windex, fantastic, pledge, etc)
  • laundry baskets
  • laundry detergent
  • dryer sheets
  • trash bags
  • silver ware
  • plates
  • cups
  • dish towels
  • dish rags
  • dish washing soap
  • dishwasher detergent
  • can goods & non-perishable foods
  • salt & pepper sets
  • basic spices (ex. garlic salt, onion salt, cinnamon) 
  • Twin & double bed linens
  • bath towels and wash clothes
  • vacuums  
  • pots & pans
Shampoo, Conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving supplies, deodorants and toiletries as such can easily be obtained from the American Red Cross and we have easy access to them. I am currently working with Pampered Chef to get cooking utensils. And we are hoping Tupperware will assist us with some storage supplies. Thanks again for your support!

    Am so blessed to be able to pray for you!
    Psalms 31:14-16 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.
