Gently Used Household Items Needed

Thirdspace (an alternative worshipping community connected to Waterloo Lutheran Seminary) has a Lending Library of basic household items (linens and kitchenware) for incoming international students. Students “take out” items for the time they are here and then return them in good order at the end of their time in Canada - often with more items - with much gratitude to be used by the next group of students!
Here is a list of items the lending library could use:
Blankets, Pots and Pans, Tea towels, Cutlery, Knives, Bed lamps , Alarm clocks, Colanders, Can openers.
If you have any of these (gently used) items and would like to donate them to the Lending Library, they can be left here at Wilmot. Please label the bags or items clearly.
