Thrifting and garage sales during the pandemic

The White Elephant Thrift Store is still closed due to the pandemic, and I am wondering where you did your shopping and donating with it closed? If you had items you would usually donate to White Elephant, did you give them to another place, like a local church, or did you end up tossing what you didn't need? 

Speaking of local churches, Valley Presbyterian Church's Patio Sale is happening from April 12 - 18 according to their website. Are you going to be going to it? Are you excited?

Olive Garden has great lunch menu and  medium priced offerings. The one in Tucson is always full with people waiting to be seated.

AAUW GV March Meeting

AAUW Green Valley Branch March Program: The Golden Minute

 

Tuesday, March 16, 2021, 9:10 a.m. (social) and 9:30 (program), via Zoom 

Worldwide each year an estimated 814,000 newborn deaths are related to hypoxic (lack of oxygen) events in full term infants. The Golden Minute refers to the first 60 seconds of an infant’s life. Within this time frame the infant should start breathing on his or her own and if not, interventions must be started. When medical personnel and midwives are taught these interventions, the infant mortality rate decreases. Learn about two programs that have been taught in Guatemala which help save the lives of infants who are not breathing at birth.

 

Meg Dornfeld is a retired RN from the NICU at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. She taught the Neonatal Resuscitation Program to medical personnel in Minnesota for 28 years and has taught both medical personnel and midwives in Guatemala since 2008. She is the director for the non-profit organization, Baby’s Breath Project.

 

Meetings are virtual on Zoom and open to the public. Email Kathy Davisson at kadavisson@yahoo.com for the link.
