In the November/December issue of Boca magazine we highlighted the great work that local charity, The Lord’s Place, does for the homeless community in Palm Beach County. As we’re in a season of thanks and giving, we’re happy to share ways that we can help The Lord’s Place with their holiday wishlist for clients, and items they need all year round:

- Travel and full sizes of shampoo, bar soap, men’s and women’s razors, shaving cream, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, sunscreen
- NEW socks and underwear (all sizes)
- Gift cards in amounts from $10 to $25 from Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Burger King, Taco Bell, Dunkin’ Donuts, Publix , gas cards, etc.
