Bundle Sunday June 24/25
SVDP is having a Bundle Sunday the weekend of June 24 and 25.   Now that school is out, go through the house and see what you don't need.   We take everything as long as it is in good condition, but not TVs and mattresses.   Clothing and furniture is always in demand.   Most of the people we help live in the poorest parts of the city.   We have families coming in August who shop for school clothes for their children and if you don't want to store those winter coats, put them in a bag for our coat give-a-way in November.   Last year we gave away over 4,500 coats to needy families.   The SVDP truck will be in the SJ south parking lot for you to drop off items.   If you have more than you can haul, call SVDP at 402-341-1688 and they will schedule a pick up time right from your front door!
