"Texas, Our Texas"
It is with a heavy heart that we write this blog post.
As you may know, North Texas experienced extreme weather the day after Christmas. Parts of Dallas were ravaged by tornadoes that were rated EF-3 and EF4.
Amazingly, several of our Olive Mae employees and friends very close to the area of destruction were spared. However, many other residents were not. The tornadoes claimed 11 lives of victims ranging in age from newborn to 78 years, and displaced hundreds from their homes.
Many people lost everything they owned, but are beyond thankful to still have their lives. At this difficult time, we want to be a part of the effort that helps the victims in our community. We are collecting supplies to deliver to Fields Recreation Center in Garland, Tx.
If you would like to donate, then please bring items to the shop during normal business hours (10 am- 6 pm) through Thursday December 31, 2015. We will be making a delivery on Friday, January 1, 2016.
Items that were requested by Fields Recreation Center are as follows:
-Gallon zip bags
-Black permanent makers
-Instant oatmeal in individual cups
-Socks of all sizes
-Adult size diapers
-Size 5 diapers for infants
Love and Prayers,
Olive Mae Team
