Not to be obtuse, and perhaps OCD is rearing its anal-retentive head, but could i ask of you, bookgrrl (or her proxy), to clarify just what exactly we should send for this year's project?

In the initial post:

http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18264088

the two things that were mentioned were:

- Toys for the homeless kids
- Turkeys or hams for the moms and kids


In the subsequent posts that followed the initial one, there were lots of (great) ideas thrown around and many "I'm in!"s. There were also some questions raised that i haven't seen answered.

I didn't see anything organized come together like last year. Granted, it's different this year and it's also entirely possible that i missed something.

Regardless, if for no other reason than to shut me (and the voices in my head) up, would someone resolve these nagging questions?

+ Are there specific toys to get?
+ Are there specific age ranges to buy for?
+ Are "gently used" items acceptable?
+ Should the gifts be wrapped or unwrapped? (And tagged "12 y.o. girl clothing" or whatever if wrapped?)
+ What grocery stores are in the area?

Any and all guidance is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
