Mobile Clothesline

Mobile Clothesline continues to serve the less fortunate in Toledo one Saturday each month. In December’s offering, a significant number of coats were distributed.  When one of our guests at the East Toledo distribution site was observed to be shivering, coatless, in the cold, a new volunteer (BGSU student), came alive and glowed (not only with the brisk air, but God’s love) as the guest walked away, wearing the new volunteer’s coat.

The clothing items that are distributed usually come from donations to our St. Tim’s Clothesline (not often from the backs of volunteers), but health supplies and toiletries must come from another source. To help with planning your shopping, Nan Myers, St. Tim’s Mobile Clothesline coordinator, has identified a specific need for each month between now and next April. Please bring these items to the designated basket in the hallway in advance of each of these dates.

January 11, 2020-deodorant and razors
February 8, 2020-toilet paper
March 14, 2020-hand soap and dish soap
April 11, 2020-small laundry detergent

Thank you to everyone who has donated or will donate to this worthwhile cause. The Mobile Clothesline clients really appreciate your contributions.
