  • A message from Katie Rountree:  “Each fall I try to put together a Giving Box which I keep in my car at all times. The box contains items that might be needed by the homeless or someone caught in a sudden rainstorm. I like to keep jackets and gloves in the box because as fall approaches often times the homeless are unprepared for the colder weather and I can just give them a jacket and some gloves on the spot. A box of dog treats are also in my Giving Box because many homeless people now have dogs as companions and what dog couldn’t use a little extra treat? I carry umbrellas because so many people don’t have one handy in a sudden rainstorm. If I see some caught in the rain I can just hand one to them. Other items are band aids, extra water and anything else I think someone could use. If you have any of these items that you no longer need, I would greatly appreciate a donation to the Giving Box. You may bring items to the next Women to Women Lunch on Sept. 12th or email me for pick up. Thank you! Katie
