"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizen can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
At Grandma's Gifts we know this to be true... and we have proof:
A group of volunteers, headed up by do-gooders Bonnie Valentino, Kathy Slaus, Orpha Robinson, Eva Hager, Vikvi Ramsey, and Linda Gillespie, contacted their friends and asked for gently used items, new items, and canned food. While they knew they'd collect a ton - we don't think they quite expected what they got! Thousands of pounds of gently used clothing, coats, and shoes; canned food for people and dogs; gorgeous handmade glass dollies; hygiene supplies; and the list goes on and on... and on. Then they decided they wanted to help Grandma's Gifts. We were moved and overwhelmed by their generosity! Just check out the photos below of what they collected and how much fun they had sorting and packing everything! Zachary Douglas attended the event to help out and lend a bit of strength.
