I read an article today about how every PTA board members house, except for 1 was destroyed in the tornado. Moore is my hometown and I feel helpless. So I am asking for donations that will specifically go to them from people in my Kansas Community.  I was thinking pampering gift baskets for them, and book bags for the children that are full of things that make them smile. This is where YOU come in.. I just need some ideas... What are some things you can think of that I could include in these baskets/book bags?

Basic needs for the baskets and for the book bags....books, crayons, coloring books, teddy bears, any basic needs.

I as well live in OK but okc and thank you for helping in this time of need. You could also put maybe tooth brushes and travel tooth paste, travel body washes, shampoo, condition just stuff that would make it easier on the families. I have very little money but am going to donate all the time I can.

Basic needs items. Some bars of soap, toothpaste and toothbrush, shampoo, etc. For the kids, some coloring books and crayons, some picture books, maybe some candy or something. Depending on the size of the bags, maybe even one of those fleece blankets you can normally find at the store and some bottled juice or water. What you're doing is awesome!!!!

TY! Im trying to make a list right now. My local paper here in KS wants to interview me. It was just so heart breaking seeing my home destroyed. I dont know how to help. I know they all have nothing but I know how many donations are pouring in to.. I also wanted to help a specific group of people, so I am aiming at the PTA board members at Plaza Towers, everyone of them but one lost their house in the tornado, so Im trying to aim this towards those families with stuff they wont get help with or things that mean a lot  but no one thinks about ya know? All those items are on my list though!:)

Well if their homes got destroyed

How about bath items, a few cheap outfits, a lot of stores are doing clearance on summer items until about next week. 

Deordarants, soaps, shampoos, etc.
