Happening now, March 16, 2020 – Here’s a way that you can get out of your house for a minute and help others out at the same time as socially isolating. Until 2pm this afternoon CCUSDs Backpacks for Kids program is collecting donations. You just drive in to the middle school parking lot, roll down your passenger window and pass the item to a gloved volunteer and be on your way back to isolation.
They need any kinds of non-perishables and hygiene items. I know we’re all trying to stock up but as they told me even just one box of rice or can of soup makes a difference when many people give one. So let’s all do something brave and generous to chase away the fear and loneliness and go for a quick drive, eh?
If you can’t make it out, you can send a check to Backpacks for Kids at 4034 Irving Place, CC 90232.
