Dear Friends and Family,

You may have learned that today is Give to the Max Day. It is a tool many organizations use to raise funds. There are matching gifts through the program for many organizations which is amazing. We just want you to know we have not officially promoted this for Reach & Restore because of the high percentage taken out of each financial gift by Give to the Max. We understand there are fees with various online giving options but want you to be aware of our reason for taking a back seat today. Every gift we receive is a blessing and given with the intention that the amount given gets to the organization.

Thankful for you, your support and prayers,

R. Oliver

Today was literally a life saver for one of our clients!  Thanks to our delivery volunteers, she will be sleeping in a safe apartment tonight.  When the volunteers arrived at the apartment door they smelled gas.  She had a key for the apartment but because it was empty, didn't stay there overnight yet.  The pilot lights were not lit on her stove.  The apartment smelled of gas.  We are all thankful that she is alive to enjoy her new home tonight!

We take simple home skills/knowledge for granted.  I wonder how many accidents happen due to lack of exposure to these types of things?

Thank you for keeping R&R in your prayers. There is opportunity to grow and we ask for provision.  God is faithful and good.  Lives are being touched and our volunteers are amazing.

Donations needed:

Men- jeans, shoes, sweatshirts and winter wear

Women- large sizes, underwear and socks

Kids- pants, boys underwear and socks, girls larger socks, sweatshirts, snowpants

Ziplock bags are always welcomed for bagging up our food donations from Caribou, Einstein Bagels, Auntie Anne Pretzels and Famous Daves

Back to school season is approaching and clothing is in higher demand for families right now. We have need for gym shoes, socks, underwear, and clothing for both boys and girls.  If you know someone else who has kids who are growing and don't know who to pass the clothing on to, please give them our number!

A mother said this when leaving the clothing closet today...

"My kids are going to be so happy. They were really concerned about what other kids would think when they go back to school. Thank you so much for your help!"

Thank you for your support and prayers for Reach & Restore!  God is meeting needs in many ways.
