Since our last newsletter, several “old timers” have blessed us with volunteer hours.  Our “Borrowing Room” was traditionally in disarray as it was never an absolute necessity.  But now our tenants can find specialty items and decorations that have been generously donated.
Would you like to help with those things that our managers rarely have time for but that bless our missionaries so much?  Here are some ideas…
  • Develop the children’s library (books, games, lamps, wall art, area rug) especially for use during winter months.  Also, new adult books.
  • Make pillow cases, accent pillows, protective pillow coverings
  • Borrowing room: take out dated items and add more items of current interest (holiday decorations, extra glass sets, pictures, etc)
  • Update our Resources Notebook for tenants who are new to Pasadena.
  • Wall art for units #1 and 9
  • Refinish tops of well-built furniture
  • Toddler-level play equipment
  • Restock emergency storage
