If you have any to donate, please call Joan at (727) 545-0469.

Jane Anderson of Tarpon Springs has used Reader's Exchange in the past to find something, and now she is hoping that she can help someone! She has a Philips 19-inch cable-ready color television with a remote control. Jane says that it has a beautiful picture and is like new. She says that it is not a flat screen, and is a bit heavy.

Ginny Smith of New Port Richey has used REX in the past to help find a new home for her pickle jars.

These can be used for all manner of things, so if you are interested, please call Ginny at (727) 372-9761 to arrange a pickup.

Back in October, Jeanne Cellini wrote in asking for fabric, trim, lace and poly fiberfill for her group, the Doll Makers. This group sews dolls to distribute at children's hospitals, Ronald McDonald houses and the like. Jeanne wrote in to say that the response was overwhelming and successful beyond belief. She would like to thank everyone who contributed, and says no words are adequate to express their gratitude.
