My former next door neighbors, Michelle and Alex Mitchell , lost their home and all their possessions in the Glass fires. This is a wonderful family- they were the best neighbors. Their home burned down- they fled the flames with their two sons, their dog and cat and the clothes on their backs. If you are able to donate to help them get back on their feet-they would be so grateful.
The following is a list from Michelle- with items that you might be able to donate to help . Do you have a used Children’s bike? Children’s clothes in good condition? Anything from the list below would be so helpful.
The following is from Michelle: “ How can I help? I got this question a lot today, and while my head is still spinning and I have no plan as of yet. It every thing to just keep walking. Just keep putting that one foot in front of the other.
The boys need some sort of normalcy. COVID stole their friends school and their birthdays. Pretty devistating to loose all your toys and prized possessions on top of that.
We would welcome item for the boys at this juncture.
We would love hand me downs. Ages 2.5 & 6.5
We need clothes: Fletcher 2T/3T , Theo 6-8 -long and very lean
Toys: Legos (diplo so they are Fletcher safe) , cars, dinosaurs, puzzles, typical boys stuff
Table games: theo loves chess, pokemon, uno, and any board game.
Outdoor: old(balance)strider bike for fletchy, Theo rocks a peddle bike
Books: Both boys love read alouds. Any subject board books through chapter books like Harry Potter.
Art & crafts: paper, crayons, water colors, paint brushes
If you have items you can donate- please DM me on FB. That way we can cross items off the “wish list “as they are donated. Many thanks to our wonderful Napa Valley community
