We are looking for tons of materials including: cardboard, coffee cans, shoe boxes, water bottles, cardboard rolls, corrugated plastic, fabric, wire, rope, hangers, egg cartons, paint, paint brushes, and more! Got wood scraps? 1×6, 2×4, 1×4, 2×6…we’ll even pick them up!

We are hosting a family dinner for all of our First Night participants–150 people! This is a really special time for the youth and their parents to spend time together reflecting on their project and celebrating the New Year. We need a lot of donated food. If you have connections to area restaurants with foods like pasta, macaroni and cheese, chicken, rice, cobbler, salad, fruit, rolls, or other foods that are relatively easy to keep hot and fresh and serve out of pans, please get in touch. The restaurants will be acknowledged on our website and in the First Night brochure that goes out to thousands of people.

Thanks so much!!
