Primavera” homeless programs. Diane Tyron, who delivers your
donations, says Primavera has been especially grateful for the
toiletries and the new socks and underwear, and Diane is impressed
with peoples generosity. She thanks everyone, and we thank her. At
the moment Primavera has sufficient used clothing, so let’s fill
the gold chest to overflowing with new socks and underwear,
toiletries and blankets. It’s ok to include items for women, as
Primavera also has a transitional housing program for women.
