Yesterday morning Hayley and I tagged and packed up some hats to bring to a new friend Jen, founder of World Moms Blog, who is helping her friends Shannon and Nikki with the Jersey Shore Good Day/Good Night Bag Drive (post to come about the awesomeness these ladies are doing) .
Hayley and I got together 6 baby blankets, 10 scarves, 51 kids hats, 3 sets of mittens and 25 adult/teenage hats. This barely made a dent into the boxes in my dining room!! Yes my husband nicely mentioned that I could start storing that hats at his office. Since I am also the walk coordinator for the Philly/South Jersey Promise Walk for Preeclampsia I already take up about an office worth of space storing donations and sort of didn’t want to ask but that is what family is for I guess (my father in law owns the building!). However, my dining room is PACKED and we don’t have an eat in kitchen so I think it might be time!!
The hats will be added to the bags and delivered to Union Beach, NJ a blue-collar shore town that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
After returning home from dropping the hats to Jen and then a visit with my parents we came home to 8 more packages!!!!!
