YOUR HELP NEEDED

IMPORTANT -

Just saw this info on Big Fat Blog about great need for large sized clothing - a little "spring cleaning" of your closets can mean a lot!

IMMEDIATE NEED FOR PLUS SIZED CLOTHING:
I am forwarding an email from a friend:
I just received an email from a group that has been to the Shelter. The big women have to wear trash bags. They observed this with their own eyes.
They are also in need of shoes - which I will be taking some but I don't have enough for 2500 people! Here is a cut and paste of what's needed:
Clothes for large women - The larger women had to wear trash bags. There were no clothes for them.
• Blankets and pillows - Over and over we were asked for them. There just were not enough to go around.
• shoes - most of the people had NO shoes
• socks/underwear
• Baby Things - formula, baby cribs, play pens, baby food, bottles, diapers
• Hygiene - toothpaste, toothbrushes, hair brushes, rubber bands, combs, deodorant
• Ladies products!!
Please, if you have these items, send them to:
Helping Hands for Texas
c/o Alamo Premier Mortgage Group
10223 281 Freeway, Suite 200
San Antonio 78216
