givingFor the last five years, Sense of Wonder has coordinated a sleepwear donation drive to benefit women staying in Lazarus House shelters during the holidays.  When we started this program, we really had no idea how much of an impact we would make.  Mom’s staying in shelters over the holidays are single minded about their needs — they want to make sure that their children have a merry Christmas.  We want to make sure these moms receive something nice too. 

Our wish list for this year includes warm bathrobes, nightgowns or pajamas, and slippers of all sizes.  We will collect donations at both our stores through the end of the year.  Donations  that come in before December 18 will be packaged up and delivered to Lazarus House in time for Xmas distribution.  Donations that come in later will be part of a second delivery to Lazarus House in early January.  We  look forward to  piles of pajamas in our stores!  Donors will receive a small thank you gift from us.  Join us as we help others.  This is what community businesses are all about.
