Thanks to everyone who donated either supplies or money to our August School Kit Drive! We collected 183 kits!! Wow! That is just spectacular. On September 12 we loaded the car up and drove the kits to Reedley California to the MCC West Coast offices. We were fortunate enough to get to see the piles of boxes ready to be shipped overseas. Every little bit counts! We then visited the MCC Quilt Showroom, and the Cafe. A wonderful quick trip, We, of course, made the promise to be back in a year, with even more kits!

School kit drive
It’s that time again! Global Heart is once again collecting school supplies for disadvantaged children. The school kits, which are received with high praise from students and teachers, are distributed in orphanages, children's shelters, schools for disabled children and refugee camps.
Last year, we collected 103 school kits for children in Syria.
This year, the school kits we collect will go to children in Colombia and Honduras. All school kits must have the same contents, so when they are distributed, all children receive the same items. We also welcome donations by cash or check. If you donate extra materials, we will distribute them to other needy children
Global Heart will collect school kits for the month of August, through September 5th

Even though we've been having 'summer-esque' weather for months now, you really can feel the change into full fledged summer. The days are longer, the nights stay warm and July 4th is just around the corner.
Now is the prefect time to get your R, W & B fix. We have plenty of personal accessories and table decor to be fully decked out for whatever party you may be attending... or throwing yourself!
So come on downtown this July 4th (and before!) for a fun day of parade watching, shopping, and end this glorious day with Sonoma's famous fireworks show. It's going to be a great day!
