Marlborough – Marlborough Girl Scouts will be partnering with Furnishing Options of Marlborough for a Day of Service Monday, Jan. 16. The Girl Scouts have organized a kitchenware drive in honor of Martin Luther's King Jr.'s birthday.
One of the missions of Girl Scouts is to “Take action and make the world a better place,” so, in honor of the 100 years of Girl Scouting, the girls are reaching out into the community and taking action by partnering with Furnishing Options of Marlborough. Items may be dropped off at the Collection Center at 66 Mechanic Street from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Suggested items for the drive include new or gently used dishes, glassware, coffee mugs (matching items only with a minimum set of four. Please, no items with company logos), silverware, pots and pans (can be individual), serving bowls and platters, plastic food storage containers with matching lids (Rubbermaid, Tupperware, etc.), mixing bowls, cooking and baking utensils, spatulas, tongs, large serving spoons and forks, measuring spoons, whisks, ladles, etc. Electric kitchen appliances can's be accepted due to space constraints. Cookbooks will also not be accepted.
Box like items together and label the outside of the box. If you have a large place setting of dishes, please pack in a separate box so that the client could take home the entire box. Matching set of glassware can be put in a plastic ziplock-type bag to keep together. Create an inventory list of the number of boxes to be given to Furnishing Options.
Tax-deductible receipts will be furnished for each donor and will need a copy for our records. Receipts don's need to be itemized – you'sl just need to count the number of boxes or bags.
