Reader's Exchange: Mikes, DVD players, other audiovisual equipment wanted

Bob Reed lives in a nursing home in St. Petersburg, and he is looking for ways to boost the morale of the residents there. Bob is looking for items they could use at the facility for a public address/audio-video system, such as microphones, microphone stands, amplifier, karaoke equipment, DVD players, CD players and anything that would allow them to have group meetings and activities. Any of these items would be greatly appreciated. Bob says he can't promise that anyone there has the ability to pick up the equipment, so it would be great if it could be dropped off. Bob can be reached on his cellphone at (312) 479-6885.

Florence of Kenneth City has some items to give away, and she's also looking for a little help. She has a cake mold that was left in a laundry room and has become rusted.
