I have a conflict and will be unable to attend. Anybody from the Hsbo area willing to take my gift in for me?

And Jen, I bet if you contacted them, arrangements could be made to have the gifts picked up that night...............

I have a F-350 truck and would donate my time for hauling if someone had a suitable trailer (enclosed trailer). A trailer would be cheaper than renting a U-haul truck. Just a thought.

Anyone out there have an enclosed trailer? Enclosed horse trailer?

WOW an event just a few miles from my house which will make traffic nice. I went to the Tunaholics get together at the Roadhouse a few weeks ago and it took me 45 minutes to get there. :depressed: This misses my company Christmas party by 2 days, things are looking good. :smile:

Hmmm... Greybeard, I already volunteered to use my truck/canopy for this. I didn't think about the Horse Trailer. We've got a Fully enclosed two horse, that and a truck should do it! Just need some good heavy duty clean boxes to keep the horse stuff off the toys :shocked: (ya it's cleaned out but I wouldn't be eating off it or using it as a filet table!)
If Emanual doesn't arrange pickup I'm sure we can put this together! :grin:

It looks like Hogmaster is going to answer the truck needs. [img]graemlins/applause.gif[/img] Thank you, Hog.

Miss B, I was thinking of scrubbing out a horsey trailer, then putting new plastic sheeting inside to make a squeeky clean place to put the gifts. I've got a new roll of black plastic. :grin:

Greybeard, Ya - If the uhaul does work it will be the easiest/best way. If it doesn't I'll be calling you for the horse trailer scrub (I've got plastic).
We'll need booxes any way we go, hopefuly u-haul will supply them. They're a great place to get them anyway (WAY cheaper if you need to ship than using mail boxes and more)!

Just an FYI for the Pizza, Adult Beverage and other Soda.
I am NOT going to cover the bill and have everyone pay me back later. I have done this in the past and ended up buying $250 worth of pizza and got $125 in return. Not a good investment. I would rather that when you come in you can either order your Pizza and drinks then or take up a collection and order then. Either way does not matter.

We can run a tab but who is going to be the one responsible at the end to ensure that the tab gets covered????

See everyone on the 4th. Maybe some lucky person will be able to take home some steelhead if I catch any by then.

To the top... and remember, if you can't make it, we'd sure appreciate, (and so would the kids) a donation, in the name of ifish to these kids, so that the foundation may purchase a gift that the child is counting on. :smile:
You may do this, by calling Jessica Walsch at : 503.413.2808. She can take your credit card number over the phone.
Thank you so much!
Jen

What are our options for boxes to transport the gifts in?
1. Get boxes donated from Uhaul.
2. Buy boxes from Uhaul
3. Have an Ifish member step forward that has access to boxes.
4. Have each vehicle that will be attending the meeting bring one box.

Any other options?

Another question: Since we will be bringing unwrapped gifts, who will wrap the gifts for the kids?

Great NEWS!!

Does anyone have a problem with Legacy Emanuel Childrens Hospital receiving our help?

I just spoke to the lady at Emanuel, and she said that usually they have to haul the presents for the children with cancer over in carts, and this year they have hardly any presents!!!! She says she has been able to take them by hand.

She thinks it's due to the economy...

Anyway, she sent me all the goods, their wish list, and hints...

You can specify if it's for the Hopsital, or for the children themselves. If you buy a big present, like a Nintendo, it should probably stay in the hospital, since they use them there. They even hook them up together, so kids can play together!
I'm so excited to help!!!

Is it a done deal? Can we help them? Oh please!?!?!?!

We will need a large truck or van to store the presents in after the party, until the office is open the next day. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
Do you think a U Haul might loan us one for free?

Any other suggestions?

I don't want to be stuck at Pietro's all night, and it would be nice, if on the way in to Pietro's we could just drop our gifts off in the truck?

Greybeard - thanks, I sent Hog an e-mail about this as well. Waiting to hear from Hog or Ripper on the truck and BOXES? :smile:

From Hogs post; "OK, ripper, when you read this make a call to a milwaukie area U-Haul and see if you can get them to donate one of their $19/day local trucks to store and forward presents in. If they won't reserve one anyway and Hog and rip's company will foot the bill"

Wow! I am so excited! I can't wait for the party.

I think the children's hospital is a great idea. My baby Travis was in the hospital on Christmas eve, he was only 3 weeks old at the time. He had a minor surgery on Christmas day... I think we got one small stuffed animal from the hospital. It was really sweet, but compared to the outpouring we received at Dorenbechers....

When Hannah was at Dorenbechers on Easter Sunday, they had the best Easter baskets for all the kids. They knew Hannah liked Harry Potter and her basket was full of Harry Potter stuff. Every day we were there, someone on the staff was giving her something.

I have heard wonderful things about Emanual children's hospital. I know from experience how much those little gifts mean to the patients and their families. The kids at Emanual are just as sick as the kids at Dorenbechers, so I am all for giving back a little of what my family has been given.

Jen, what do you need help with? Let me know, I really want to help. Do you need help delivering the stuff the next day?

Ifish is so great! :smile: :smile: :smile:

Here's the update from afar:

ripper called U-Haul in OC Monday morning and they directed him to U-Haul HQ where he explained the cause. They are considering donating a rig or at least giving a major discount and are to get back to him, I suppose in a day or two.

We'll hit them up for boxes too, but another great place to do that is the local moving companies. There is one that has a warehouse behind my office. They frequently have a big supply of used ones and I may be able to talk them into "loaning" or donating some. I'll check it out when I'm back next week. (Unless someone comes up with something before then). Would really rather see everyone spend money for gifts rather than buing boxes if we can avoid it! The bring your own box idea is a good one too, maybe not everyone, but bigger boxes would help.

I figure we will be fine with the standard smaller U-Haul truck, even if there are large amounts of presents. Those suckers will hold LOTS of gifts. I like the idea of boxes though, as transportation will be a challenge into the hospital. It occurred to me that if people just drop them off on their way in then someone has to guard the truck all night. I would certainly like to socialize some. Maybe if we go that way I can get some volunteers to take 15 or 20 minute "shifts" of guard duty. Whaddya think? Anybody up for short stints of reception/guard duty?

Jennie, you will have to get up and make the presentation of the gifts to the hospital in the morning. I can hold the loot in the U-haul overnight but probably will be able to use a volunteer or two in the morning to take the gifts in. I'll give ripper a few hours off for this if I haven't sent him to some exotic place like Fargo to do some work, but another couple of bodies might be good. Should actually be fun!?

Jennie, is this for sure that we don't wrap? And who will?

Usually I try to stay bah, humbug about Xmas until after Thanksgiving as a matter of principle, but this is such a great idea it is hard not to feel excited about it!!

3 cheers to Jenn!!!

Hog - We can take a couple boxes into the Pizza parlor. When they get full run them out to the (locked) truck and grab some empties. That way no one will have to babysit the truck and parking lot (It will be raining - right?). It'll be good excersize for those of us who consume to much Pizza and Cervesa!

I'm wondering about the gift delivery too! Jennie - what did Emanual say about delivery/storage wrapping etc. :whazzup:

Hogmaster and all:

I volunteer to pull guard duty on the truck for an hour or two and help unload it. :grin: I'm recently retired so I have lots of time. The warm fuzzy feeling from helping needy kids will be even better than catching that 60 lb chinook I've been searching for.
I'm trying to call Jessica from the hospital to find out the details on just how they give the gifts to the kids. I understand why they want gifts that are unwrapped, but I want to find out if they wrap the gifts just before they give them. I'll let you know what I find out.

I just got off the phone with Jessica. The hospital sorts and wraps the gifts. [img]graemlins/applause.gif[/img]
They will store the gifts. Jessica is going to talk to her boss and find out if we can deliver to the hospital the night of the party.

Jennie was all over this, and had already emailed Jessica on the subject. I hope I didn't step on your toes by making the call, Jennie. You're the one making it happen, I just wanted to help. :smile:

I'll be there. I just called Jessica at the Children's Hospital because I want to donate some packaged Star Wars action figures that weren't on the list. She said it would be fine because kids would like to receive that kind of toy. Sounds like they would like to receive anything the kids would enjoy. She also said they are careful about determining who's old enough to play with what too.

If anyone wants to donate a gift and cannot attend, let me know and I will try to help out by picking up the toys. I run all over Portland/Vancouver on a daily basis anymore if anyone wants to email me that cannot attend, I will try to coordinate a toy pick up.

I am going to work on the bikes... anyone want to contribute let me know... I will check tomorrow to see if I can't get a discount from someone since we are donating them to the hospital.

I will let you know what I find out tomorrow.

Yes, we can deliver the night of the party.

We need names of two or three that will be doing the main delivering, for security purposes.

Dang, I'm hungry... Is it lunchtime yet?

:smile:

From Jessica:

"Also I had a request from our Development and Rehab program that they are
interested in receiving smaller 2-wheel bikes with training wheels for
children ages 4-5 if anyone is looking for other donation ideas (it would be
for rehab use not for individual children)."

Still working on the bikes. I found out that clerks have no authority and know very little. I have the names of the head honches and most will be in on Monday. So I should know more tomorrow.

What I am doing is telling them about the ifish toy drive for Emanual and trying to get the bikes at their cost. Who knows, maybe I will get someone to donante one for free! [img]graemlins/hearton.gif[/img]

Here's the latest on the truck.

U-Haul didn't get back to ripper at all in a week. I tried this morning and got the same pushback he got ("I can only take your name and number and somebody will get back to you").

So I wrote an email to U-Haul on the web and explained the situation. It would be nice to know one way or the other if they want to participate or not.

My company will get a truck one way or the other, but after a week of being too busy to even return a call I don't think it will be U-Haul unless they want to "step up".

Jennie, I will be responsible for keeping the gifts overnight at my house under the eye of a complete raccoon family and Maxine the loud barking wonder dog. Thanks, Graybeard and fishisabonus for volunteering drop off duty - It should be fun the next day too!
