Clean used winter clothing (from sm to XXXL for men and women

Thermal underwear or sweats and polar fleece that can fit under clothing.

Warm sox,

Gloves, mittens, stocking caps and scarves

Cold and flu meds

Cough Drops

Microwavable food

Lunch meat


Canned foods in 15-16oz cans such as chili

Mayonnaise, mustard, catsup salt and pepper

Ramen noodles,

Cup of Soup

Laundry detergent and dryer sheets

Ziploc bags in qt and gal  sizes

If we each buy one item we can together supply all of these things. Buy in volume if you can such as at Costco. The camp literally runs on coffee when the weather is cold. They use about 25 lb of sugar a week. About 60% of the residents work and get to work on the buses. They need to be able to take lunch items with them. They use Ziploc bags to pack up leftovers from the evening meal and Top Ramen when nothing else is available. When it is cold they go through even more of the items that can be heated up. When it is cold you need more calories to stay warm if you are outside.

A great idea for youth groups and Sunday school classes is to make rice bags. Take cheep tube sox and fill them with dry rice. Tie a knot at the top. These can be heated in a microwave and used to heat a bed all night.

Call Sandi if you have any questions. 425-823-1629.

    I will be at Target today and will pick up two large cans of coffee, some spoons/forks/knives, paper cups, trash bags, and creamer/sugar. Probably only enough to last one day, though. :(

    I too have a Costco box of forks & sandwich bags I’m bringing along with coffee and other items. It’s cold, hot coffee is good!
