If you are at home for awhile and find yourself cleaning out closets, pantries, or your bookshelves, please consider donating to BFR. Our clients are abiding by the Governor’s request to Stay Home for Nevada but are getting antsy.
We would love books, crossword puzzles, magazines, coloring books, art supplies, yarn, knitting or crocheting needles, board games, etc.
Also, if you have food, meditation dvds or cds, face masks or gloves we could really use those as well.
