"Bring it if you got it party"

Many of you have already received our letter in the mail about our upcoming Honduras trip for 4 weeks from July 8th to August 6th.

We would love to see our Rochester-onian friends before we leave for Honduras and move to the Minneapolis area. We would also really like to collect some more supplies to take with us to Honduras. So, we are having an open house at our place on Sunday, June 8th from 3-6pm.

We would love to say goodbye to you before we move so feel free to stop by and sample some Central American food. If you would like to donate an item or more from the list below, you can bring it by our house on Sunday. We plan on taking our maximum amount of luggage for our 4 tickets to Honduras and if we get more than we can take, then we will pay for extra luggage or ship it there.

Here is the list of needs from the Hospital Loma de la Luz in Balfate, Honduras (
  • towels for patients
  • diapers (all sizes and any brand)
  • wet wipes
  • enema kits (both Fleet and normal kits)
  • OB/Gyn suction bulbs
  • combination DVD/VCR player and TV monitor
  • antihistamines or other cough/cold medicine (Zyrtec, Sudafed, Benedryl, Claritin/Loratadine, diphenhydramine, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, etc.)
  • antifungals, creams and ointments (Lamisil, Lotrimin, Lotrisone, Monistat, etc.)
  • Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and Naproxen (Aleve) and Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • children's ibuprofen and acetaminophen liquid and tablets
  • steroid creams and ointments (hydrocortisone, Cortaid)
  • rolled gauze, gauze squares
  • rolled, stretchy gauze
  • alcohol swabs
  • cotton balls or cotton rolls
  • marking pens for glassware (permanent, felt tip, i.e. Sharpie)
  • staplers and staples
  • hand sanitizer
  • items for Honduran kids: pencils (colored and black), sharpeners, crayons, notebooks, glue sticks, scissors, pens, erasers, soccer balls and frisbees (They only want small amounts of these items.)
