YES! They can.
This month I’m making that happen right there in my home town. I volunteer at The Human Needs Food Pantry of Montclair. Once a week our clients come in to get bags of fresh food to help feed their families. The pantry is funded by generous donations from individuals and businesses in the community.
In addition clients get a monthly pass to “shop” in our “boutique.” They get bags which they can fill with whatever items are available that they need in terms of clothing, personal care products, bedding and towels. Volunteers sort and organize a steady stream of donations that keep the “boutique” happening.
This year I put together a trunk show to benefit the HNFP. No matter how much comes in we never seem to have enough of some things like sheets, towels, and blankets. If you live in or near Montclair stop by on Dec 4. If you bring in new or clean gently used towels, sheets and bedding I’ll give you a $20 gift certificate to shop for jewels. There will also be lots of treats, wine, and interesting people.

A portion of my jewelry sales will go to the pantry as well. AND I designed the foodie charm bracelets pictured here to benefit HNFP? They are on sale on my web site now, and they will be available December 4 at the event.
