Gathering Hearts birthday bash

A birthday package for a YOTO teen

Gathering Hearts is an SBR outreach program that supports YOTO (Youth On Their Own). On June 7 we will be collecting birthday packages to be distributed to the YOTO teens in their birthday month. The package should include a cake mix, frosting and anything you think would be good to decorate the cake (candles, decorations, sprinkles, etc.) along with cake plates and anything else related to a birthday cake celebration. These items should be placed in a see-through ziplock bag. Extra bags will be available during pick-up times.

Collection of the packages will be at the Bistro during Happy Hour on June 7.

If that date is not convenient for you, please contact Bev Hanson at 520-399-6798 or Carol Smith at 209-596-0976 to arrange a more convenient date for you to drop off your package(s).

To find out more about YOTO and other donations needed, please check out their website at As always there is an ongoing collection of full-size hygiene products such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, lotion or feminine hygiene products that can be dropped off anytime at Bev’s or Carol’s home.

Thank you for your participation.
