The Rainycrest Auxiliary would like to thank you for all of your generous donations to the Tuck Shop. It means a lot to the residents to be able to go shopping at our shop for gifts, toiletries, personal items and snacks, especially during the times when we have all been asked to stay at home due to Covid. We could use: unused toiletries (remember Rainycrest is a scent free zone) knick knacks or decorative items for residents to use as gifts or to decorate their own space. Jewelry and stuffies are always appreciated. We would also like you to remember to donate items for our male residents. Items can be left inside the front door with a label saying ATTN Gary in the Tuck Shop.
