Shopping has begun for Furnishing Hope welcome baskets.
 
The Community Service committee has begun shopping for items for the gift baskets we will be providing to support low-income families and individuals with critical needs in the Santa Barbara area. The program is called Furnishing Hope and provides new Transition House residents with a “Welcome Home Kit” of basic household items and donated furniture to help furnish their new home. So far, we have purchased laundry detergent, tooth brush and tooth paste, bedding set of sheets and pillow case, 2 in 1 shampoo, toilet paper, tissues, dish soap, hand soap and socks that will go into baskets for ten families. We hope to work with the Santa Barbara/Goleta Quilters Guild to see if they will provide a quilt. The committee will meet in May to assemble and deliver the baskets.
