Toledo School District shared: (Yesterday’s) all-district evacuation drill went smoothly. Our thanks to the staff and elders at the Mission for their courtesy.
In the event of an actual emergency, this is where parents would go to be reunited with their children.
From Brandie Devine: I realize there are A LOT of fundraisers "out there" - there are A LOT of needs out there as well. You don’t have to donate to help, you can "share" the post with others so they can donate or share.
From the Fundly page:
Visiting Hooves is a 501c3 Nonprofit Charity in southwest Washington state who visits memory care facilities, nurse hospice, and special needs homes. It maintains 5 miniature therapy horses and 5 therapy bunnies. For the past 3 ye needed for free and now only asks for donations from facilities to help offset the high expense of feed, housing, vet costs and fuel expenses for transporting the animals. It is an all volunteer program. More...
Brandie adds: Please share this fundraiser, she is a local gal doing her best with what she has to bring joy to the elderly & terminally ill. Thanks for your support!
