Aging in Place, February 1

Do you have worn or stained blankets, towels or sheets? Let’s put them to good use! 

Please bring them to the Green Tent on Sunday, February 1st. Our guest, the new MVCC Committee on Aging in Place will collect and donate them to the West LA Animal Shelter and other local animal rescue organizations. 

This rescue organization used over 80 towels on the
day this photo was taken
Stained, frayed, torn...not a problem! They just need to be laundered. Please bring them in reusable shopping bags for easy transport. Once emptied, the bags will be donated to the Mar Vista Farmers' Market share-a-bag station.

With or without items to donate, please stop by and learn about the work the Aging in Place Committee is doing. They would love to hear what your concerns are for aging in place and invite you to sign up for their eblasts.

At some point we all need to downsize or close up a home after the death of a loved one. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure; you just need to find the right person for those gently used items! The MVCC Aging in Place Ad-Hoc Committee has compiled a list of local resources that we can donate to.

The Aging in Place committee meets the third Thursday of each month at Windward School (11350 Palms Blvd.) in Boardroom 800. Contact sherri.akers@marvista.org for more information.
