Asking $50 each or best offer.

Frigidaire Washing Machine — heavy duty, extra large capacity with 7 cycles.

GE Spacemaker Washing Machine — One-Touch load sensing; this is a smaller-size washing machine — measures 24″ W x 28″ D x 37″ H.

All appliances were gently used by my two grandmothers — we don’t remember how old they are (the appliances, not the grannies), but were in use up until the fall. All would have to be picked up in Ballston Spa.

A friend of mine volunteers at Peaceful Acres Horses, a horse rescue sanctuary, and has put out a challenge to collect $5 worth of recyclable cans or bottles this week that will be used to purchase hay.

This all-volunteer sanctuary rescues horses from kill pens and horses who have suffered from neglect by their owners.

If you have any cans or bottles at home or in your office and would like to donate them for this worthy challenge, I will be happy to pick them up from your office during lunch or after work.

I’m including a link to the PAH site for those interested in more information about the sanctuary’s mission, volunteer and adoption programs. Here is the link: http://www.peacefulacreshorses.com/.

Thank you,

I’m working on a social action project with team members from Empire State College’s Student Leadership Institute. One of our team members, Jawana, lost her husband of more than 20 years to a hit-and-run driver. Since then, Jawana has been working to pass legislation in New York State to increase the penalties for drivers who flee the scene of an incident. One bill has already passed the Senate and we are urging legislators to pass it and for Governor Cuomo to sign it.

Currently, the penalties for a driver leaving the scene of an incident he/she has caused are too lenient. It is actually to the driver’s benefit to leave in an effort to cover up reckless driving or DWI. Some who leave are never caught, leaving a family with no justice and no closure.

There are thousands of cases just like Jawana’s husband’s, where lives have been shattered or families torn apart due to serious injuries and fatalities caused by hit and run drivers.  We are fighting for those who suffer in silence. Passage of this legislation is the only way for the law to stop giving drivers who leave the scene of a crash a benefit for leaving.

You can see Jawana’s story and sign the Change.org petition below. If you have questions or a personal story relating to a hit-and-run incident, you can share it at projectsherman2016@gmail.com.

The petition:

Dear colleagues,

On May 21, 2016, I will be walking in the Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Walk.

My husband, John, has been suffering from Crohn’s disease for 18 years. It has been a long battle with many ups and downs. Even after two bowel resection surgeries, medications and dietary restrictions, he still lives in pain every day. Last year John built up an immunity to Remicaid and the drug no longer works for him. Next he tried Humira and his body rejected it and caused him to become very ill. This left him unmedicated for a period time which caused his Crohn’s to flare and become active again. John had his first Enyvio infusion in early 2016. We are keeping positive thoughts and are hopeful that this drug will provide him with some relief. John and many others are running out of drug options! We NEED to find a cure! We cannot do it on our own and need all of your support.

I hope you will consider supporting me by clicking the link below to view my personal page. If you prefer, you can send your contribution directly to me in ADM 270 (checks can be made payable to CCFA). Your support is greatly appreciated!

Here’s the link:
http://online.ccfa.org/site/TR/TakeSteps/Chapter-UpstateNY?px=3018390&pg=personal&fr_id=6001

One in every 200 people suffers daily with digestive diseases. CCFA’s mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life for children and adults affected by these diseases. A champion for 1.4 million Americans, CCFA strives to inspire, instill hope, and create a community which empowers patients.

I am asking you to support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will truly make a difference in the thousands of lives suffering with IBD.

I appreciate your support.

Thank you,
Christine Lasch

If you have either a Cub or Boy Scout uniform and/or gently used hiking boots, that are outgrown and ready for a new home, please consider donating them.

I live in a rural area and many of the families cannot afford to purchase Scout uniforms or hiking boots, which unfortunately discourages some boys from even joining scouting. Thus, I will happily accept donations of any Cub Scout or Boy Scout uniform (or uniform components) and pass them along to scouts, who will make good use of them.

If you have a uniform and/or hiking boots that you would like to donate or have any questions, please feel free to contact me (j.deitchman@hvcc.edu or ext. 7567).

Yours in scouting,
