MDC families need your help this Holiday season!  The Holiday Helper team would like to meet all child and adult footwear needs by 12/10/12 - and we can't do it without you! 

hh2.gif

 

Do you have new or gently used footwear that you can donate to a Family In Need

(Quick - go check your closet now!)

Or, can you join together with another member to help pay shipping for donated items? 

 

A comprehensive list of all the items needed can be found on the Master Needs List, but if you are in a hurry, just post to the

"I Have Available" thread and the busy little Holiday Helper elves will do the matching for you! 

 

This week we are focusing on footwear, but all donations are welcome!

Please post to the "I Have Available" thread if you have any items that you are willing to donate. 

 

If you have any questions, please PM a member of the Holiday Helper team:

We don't need shoes this fancy!  But those gently used shoes at the back of your closet might be just what one of our families needs!

I can help #18. I have a pair of size 9 boy toddler shoes. They're Velcro sneakers, new with tags. I bought the, about a year ago and my son still hasn't grown into them.

I have a brand new pair of size 8 toddler L.L Bean snow boots in blue. They didn't fit my son. Instead of sending the boots back, I'd be happy to send them to a FIN.
