Thanks so much for responding to helping with this project!

I look forward to meeting many of you over the weekend.

Sorry I can’t respond to all of the individual emails but I guess this is a good problem to have.

As for timings, we'll be at the church from 10-6pm on Satruday and 10until we're done on Sunday- come when you can and stay as long as you want.

I would recommend that you bring bottled water and wear comfortable shoes as you’ll be on your feet for most of the time you are with us.

The jobs are multiple but essentially we’ll be unpacking donations, sorting them into size and gender, adding some extra bits n’bobs like ribbons and extra special things like Warmth and Care, combining clothes, with shoes, toys, blankets whatever we have on hand, packaging them into a stunning gift and putting them aside for delivery.

As the project continues to expand we want to do our best to also expand the feeling of intimacy and the lovely warm ‘we’re in this together sense’ that has accompanied the project in previous years. In that spirit and with that sentiment I invite you all to bring along a food item to share with your volunteer companions. We’ve had offers of soup, cake... bread would be good, some fruit…I think you get the picture… as we don’t want to now turn our efforts away from the task at hand to figure out how to sustain all you good folks who have agreed to volunteer your time and energy. Some would say that we don’t have to feed everyone, and no we don’t, but in my experience that’s what people joined in a purpose with a task at hand do for one another, and for the many of you who have committed to 3 hours plus if your belly is happy my sense is you will be too…

My cup overflows,
