Ongoing needs include household and cleaning supplies, work-appropriate clothing (especially plus sizes), hygiene supplies, food, gift cards, and prayers.

Another fun way to help out:  Attend “An Afternoon at the Movies – the Decade Awards” at the Sheraton Uptown, Saturday, May 9, 11:30am-2:30pm, in honor of APH’s 10th anniversary.
