Please - NO GEL Packs or ICE packs!
We like to re-use and recycle too, but we don't have a need for these, and would appreciate it if they're not left in the donations bin. We just move them to the trash, and we'd rather save our resources to keep getting food and hygiene supplies for those in need. Thanks for understanding and NOT sending these our way!
We also have plenty of grocery bags so please recycle those at home!
