“It can be a logistical nightmare to work out the pick up and distribution of donations,” said Bob Frankenfield, Executive Director. “It is very time consuming. Carol can certainly attest to this. Unfortunately, with our lack of staff and the responsibilities of the IHN and HPRP Programs, Deanna and I cannot provide the attention that is required for the coordination of donations.”
“Please welcome Tracy. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org She has been doing a great job handling a variety of tasks, including the recent procurement of much needed car seats.”
“We have become very mindful of the donations that we are accepting. Some items, such as donated children and infant car seats, were outdated and unsafe. Please see the information below which outlines some simple guidelines for donations. Due to our limited space and with the scare of bed bug infestations, these basic rules have become necessary.”
