hello from Hekab Be. It's early fall, though it still feels like summer around here...it's quiet and the visitors are few, but kids are back to school and in need of materials nonetheless...

Here's our latest wish list (please also scroll down to the bottom for items that we currently do *not* need)

for the kids--
Pocket Folders

Spiral notebooks
zippered pencil bags

matchbox cars
hair things
jewelry - especially beaded bracelets (the girls are all gaga over these)
any individually wrapped toy

for the library--
plastic storage tubs
paint (exterior/interior) - can be bought locally
cleaning supplies (contact Maggie for details, best place to get these is at Sam's/Costco in bulk)
