To clean or not to clean...

It seems like I have been working Switchboard non-stop, and that is only because Norberto (he makes the Switchboard calendar) put my days towards the end of the month and then the beginning of the next month. 😮 FINALLY, the last two days, I was able to get in our Silver Star Room and go through the many boxes that were just stacked about. DFPS has quite a few resource rooms around the state that are a big help to our APS caseworkers in providing goods to assist the clients. Silver Star Rooms are resource rooms that are set up like a little wharehouse where caseworkers can find basic necessities and emergency resources for vulnerable adults who have been abused and/or neglected. This includes things like dietary supplements, adult diapers, and toiletries. There are times when we have ADL equipment as well as fans, portable AC units, and small window units.

We have an overabundance of so many toiletry items that I think we can start putting together some items for our clients. My supervisor said they did this in the past. Well, I think it's time we brought it back. 😊 Plus, it would rotate out the donations being brought in. I also found 11 boxes of baby wash and shampoo, which I am sending over to CPS side. It took me two days to get everything swapped around and organized. My supervisors even decided to help me out the last few hours while we were waiting for our commissioner, who ended up not being able to visit. I think we did a pretty good job! Still have a bit of work re-arranging on shelves to do but at least you can walk inside the door now. LOL!
