CHALLENGE #1 - 2018

Oshkosh, Wisconsin


The Christine Ann domestic abuse shelter is a repeat shelter challenge for The Pink Slipper Project.  We are always happy when a shelter requests more of our slippers and washcloths for their clients.  We are having such very cold weather all across the country at this time that we am sure that a nice pair of warm, comfy slippers will be appreciated by everyone, along with our handmade washcloths.  

Most shelters have a Wish List of most-needed items on their webpage. We are going to post a link here to Christine Ann’s Wish List (updated December, 2017). http://www.christineann.net/help/   If there are any items that you would like to send along with your pledged items, we are sure they would be welcomed.  They have also expressed to us a need for arts and crafts supplies for children of all ages snd we will list some suggestions below.****
