Manor Care, a nursing home/rehab center in Arlington, offers bingo games for the residents throughout the week.  Small prizes make the games especially fun.  Our goal is to gather prizes to donate to the “prize closet.”  Below is a list of items requested.  The best items are tasty, individual size, usable, and cheerful.  Only new items, please.


Small bags of candy or individual servings of cookies—sugar free or with sugar; Peanut butter crackers; Knick knacks (cute); Socks for women; Note pads; Pens; Small decorative boxes; Large print word game books or Sudoku; Decks of playing cards; Nail polish, Lipstick. Hand cream (small) and Shampoo (small) are also on the list—but note that “hotel size” is too small for these items.


You may bring donations to church, note that they are for “Bingo” and give them to the ushers or put them in the chapel.  Or you may donate money to the project--put it in a pew envelope marked “Bingo” and place in the offering plate.  Our enthusiastic shoppers can make your donation go a long way! 
We will gather these items through Sunday, March 24.  Any questions?  Contact   

Thanks to all of you for your generosity.
