This is Brendan Sample - I'm a member of Boy Scout Troop 633. I'm a senior at Christian Brothers High School and I am working on my Eagle Scout Project, running a coat and blanket drive for the people who everything in the Camp Fire. I have put out collection boxes in the RMA building and at the Rancho Murieta hotel lobby, and I’ve put up posters in the Raley's Grocery Store and at Go Fore Pizza. I'll be collecting coats and blankets through December 24th, so that we can get them up to people for Christmas.
I need your help to get a pile of coats and blankets to distribute. There is a church in Paradise (the church still stands, although some associated buildings burned) that is happy to get the coats we collect--I'll just need to take them up when they need them. If you could talk to your neighbors, parents' co-workers, friends, anyone really, and spread the word about the drive, that would be great. I've attached a copy of the flyer that describes the coat drive. We’re looking for new coats and blankets, both for adults and children.
Thank you for the help!
