Where care is most like home.

Lil’ Caboose is now collecting donations for the Animal refuse League in Westbrook.  You may or may not know that they recently has a fire there (No animals or staff were injured).   I would like to start collecting donations now (See list of needed items below) and once we receive a good amount, I will take the children over there to have them give the donations to the Staff.  I think this would teach the children a good lesson as well as make them proud to be helping out.  In addition to the list below they also would like CASH donations.  Please help with any item that you can, big or small they can use it.  Please spread the word. Thank you.
