To recap from the long post below:
Without question, Cornerstones House Manager Elissa Covello has her hands full just getting through the day. Still, she wants to give the residents at Cornerstones a feeling of a safe and cozy home. She is hoping to paint bedrooms this weekend! Can you help make Elissa’s wish for these kids come true?Paint and Painting Supplies ~ ASAP!!!Bedding ~ blankets, bottom sheets, pillow casesFurniture ~ couches, comfy chairs, end tables, coffee tables, dinning room furniture, chairs, dresser
TO UPDATE, I posted on several local Yahoo groups and then realized I should have created this post. I always say, I’m a work in progress and so is Time Well Spent…
Marcia Ford at the Ipswich Recreation Department (on the basement level at the Ipswich Town Hall) has offered to accept small items at the Rec Department and she will deliver them to Cornerstones.
INQUIRIES SO FAR:
Debbie F has a couch but one cushion is stained. Would that be okay? Does anybody have a slipcover?
From Ginny, describing several lightweight comforters: The twins are in perfect condition; they’ve in storage for awhile. The double is in really good condition, but it has been used a bit longer, so I’ll have to take a look at it to see if it’s worn. The twins are green with cranberry – kind of a quilty looking pattern; the double is peach with a ruffle – very girly. So, it may not meet their needs. I’m going to look to see if I have anything else.
From Elizabeth R (via Newburyport SEED):” I have some paint, where can I bring it? Pink and white I think…” Ipswich Rec Dept can take the small stuff to Cornerstones.FROM BETTY DORMAN (Ipswich Rec Dept):I may have some extra bedding and blankets. What size sheets do you need? I also have a floral couch that is quite sturdy but has been scratched by cats so does not look great. I would need help having that moved but it is on a ground level. I also have black “comfy chair” recliner/rocker that is worn and patched but still works fine. I also may have some brushes and rollers, but no quantity of paint to do a room. I can transport the small stuff myself, could bring it there tomorrow afternoon or Sat. morning about 8:00 or so.PHONE CALL FROM WENDY R: Wendy has a lot of paint – good basic colors, blues, greens, white…
