It's that time of year when we think about how lucky we are, what great friends we've made - and realize that not everyone is as fortunate.   Single Volunteers is asking all members to help us donate to a bunch of young guys who could use our help.  Volunteers of America has 65 young men who are in need of many things.  These young men are between the ages of 18-24 - and many are homeless or in transitional housing.  Several of these boys were in the foster care system and now find themselves on their own.  So, we will be creating care packages and goodies for them at our December meeting.  St. Basil Adult Singles and the Meetup New In Town Groups will be helping us to collect stocking hats and gloves for our project.  If you can't make the meeting contact Debbie for drop-off arrangements:  dk3330@hotmail.com or 216.534.7024 - If anyone is available to help sort and pack items at Debbie's house on Wednesday morning, December 24th please let her know.  Items to bring to the meeting:  one package of new Men's white athletic socks (i.e, 3 per package), one individually packaged toothbrush, one deodorant,  and one tube of toothpaste.  If you can't bring all items please bring what you can - and if you can contribute more we'd appreciate that as well.  The Dollar Stores are a great resource. In addition we know what great cookie makers we have in our group.  Let's also give these young men a package of Holiday Cookies.  "A Cookie Exchange"!!  I'm sure they don't get homemade cookies!   We ask each member to bring 3-6 dozen "small" cookies (or more) and after the meeting we will setup a distribution line to fill up the cookie gift boxes. .   Wednesday December 3 7:00 - 8:00 VOLUNTEER:  Mt.
