I am so excited about our event next week at North Hills in Raleigh!
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday, May 16, we have all kinds of activities lined up - a free workout for moms and their little ones; visits with emergency vehicles; free music and sports programs for kids; a storytime from Quail Ridge and more! This earlier post has all of the details and the full line up.
As part of the day, we also will be collecting new socks and underwear in all sizes - kids to adult - for Note in the Pocket. This fantastic local organization, which I wrote about last year, provides clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County with dignity and love.
Note in the Pocket gives those kids a wardrobe of clothes they can wear to school, including brand new socks and underwear (because there is nothing dignified about wearing somebody's old underwear or socks). All sizes are needed because many of the high school kids that the nonprofit provides clothes for wear adult sizes.
And those larger sizes are always needed, Note in the Pocket's executive director Dallas Bonavita tells me.
I'd love to be able to bring a big load of socks and underwear to Note in the Pocket after Monday's event. So, if you're coming on Monday and able to give a little something, we'll have a bin for donations!
We'll be on the Commons, across from North Hills' movie theater and behind the Starbucks and Ben & Jerry's, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday.
