For those of you that are local can you please help? There is an encampment of homeless teenagers from ages 12-17 in need of help. They are trying to get them personal supplies and other thing to keep them warm and feed. Can you please help them by donating items for them. North Coast Surgical Specialists is acting as a drop off point for the items.

Items needed are 30 min phone cards, blankets, cots, dark colored tarps, blankets, sleeping bags, tents, foam pads, can food, camping stoves, person hygiene items. Betty Chin is the one who found them, and organizing the efforts.

Above is the drop off location.

I’ll see what I can round up around here.
Having gone without a furnace in my house all year, I can only imagine what these kids are going through.

Thanks! The bad thing is some of these kids are wards of the county.

My Bishop of my ward was all choked up at the situation.

Would you like to do a short interview for kgoe?
Less of an interview more of a quick sounder from you over the phone.
You would just tell people in your own words what the story is and plug the drop off location for donations and any other info. that would help.
It would have to be after noon but up until about 6pm. I would then run it that night and the next day.
We’re in the phone book if you are interested.
Ask for Tom.

I’m just relaying info, hoping that more people will know more about this problem, to bring about more help. Betty Chin, etc are the heroes of this story.
