One of the chaplains contacted me and asked if there was any way we could send over some children’s clothes sizes 5-12.  Apparently tracksuit style clothing is what is needed.  He said he would call me when he comes home to explain so that is good enough for me.  It is hard to get a feel for how much is wanted but he suggested just  small amount and see how that goes.  Second hand clothes are more than acceptable.  Does anyone think they can help out?  If so please leave a comment and I will email you separately.
I also had a request for a laundry bag and quilt today from another soldier in Afghanistan and have sent an email out to my list of volunteers.  Don’t forget if you are interested in being on the volunteer list just let me know.  You don’t have to accept every request that I send out – just the ones that you think you can manage and have the materials for.  
One of our lovely Friends, Sue told me that she rolled her quilts diagonally to fit them in her boxes and I couldn’t picture it so I asked her to send me a picture or two.  She did better than that!  Check it out.  You might like this method too!  Give it a try and tell me what you think.
Till next time…………….keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
