We’ve made some changes to our Wishlist process. Instead of one long list that seems intimidating for our friends, we now have two lists:
Immediate Top Needs
These are items that we need to purchase for our operations now. Many of our friends want to buy things for us, so the shortlist includes underwear, coffee, and bowls for grits!! The cost of items listed here ranges from about $8 for coffee to $25 or so for things that come in waves! Even as I type this, I know I’ll have to edit this post!! But that’s the idea! Once they’re purchased, I’ll update this post. 🙂
The nature of our business requires a lot of socks, underwear, and instant breakfast items. We’ve listed those items that we go through all of the time here. Once we’re fully stocked, we’ll change the list to other things we need to pass out to our guests.
Weekly, we purchased milk, bologna, and eggs from Walmart.
Beyond Amazon, here are some things we routinely order from Sams Club:
- Multifold Paper Towels for our dispensers
- Artificial Sweeteners:
Please take a look at the list and pick an item or two (or more) to support our operations. We serve over 400 meals per week, from 60 to 105 people a day, Monday through Saturday. In 2022, we served 21,570 meals to nearly 1,000 unique individuals and something like 6,000 pots of coffee!! We could not do this without your generosity!! Y’all are amazing!!
Thanks in advance!
