Description: Forget spring cleaning.. skip the scrubbing.. Instead, choose thoughtfully, shop locally, and give back.

Thursday, April 30th, 2009 through Thursday May 7th, 2009, local retailer Sense of Wonder will collect donations of new toiletries and personal care products to benefit clients of Lazarus House Ministries in Lawrence. Sense of Wonder will arrange donated items into gift packages and deliver them to Lazarus House for distribution to women served by the Lawrence organization, all in time for Mother’s day.

“We feel it is our responsibility as a local business to give back to the community that supports us,” notes Jean Smith, owner of Sense of Wonder. “In December, we organized a donation drive and collected over a hundred sets of pajamas and slippers for Lazarus House clients. That drive was so successful and our customers so happy to contribute, that we decided to stick with a good thing and organize another drive for spring. Lazarus House is our North Andover neighbor, serves local families, and is a great fit with our store. The women helped by Lazarus House Ministries deserve to feel special, especially around Mother’s Day.”

New toiletries and other personal care products will be collected right at Sense of Wonder, located in the Eaglewood Plaza on Rt. 114 (99 Turnpike Street), in North Andover.

The following items are particularly needed: shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, razors, hand sanitizer, hair products, and body lotions.

The Mother’s Day donation drive will kick off with a Ladies Night Open House on Thursday, April 30th, 2009 from 5pm-8pm at Sense of Wonder. Lazarus House donation items can be dropped off that evening and Sense of Wonder visitors will be greeted with light refreshments, special promotions, raffle gift baskets, and store specials.
