People In Chico are sleeping unsheltered and as
the temperatures drop, they need a way to keep warm. To provide assistance, Caring
Choices and Coordinated Outdoor Assistance and Shelter Team (COAST) are collecting
donations of sleeping bags, tarps, socks, hats, jackets and other insulating items for
distributing to those in need. Monetary donations are also appreciated and will be used to buy
items for donating.
Let me know ASAP if you are available to volunteer. Call or email me 530-354-1593.
Volunteer Shifts - This entails being at the Our Hands Sculpture by City Hall and accepting donations as they come in and or giving them out to those in need. Those that are comfortable, in teams will be assigned to distribute items to known areas of need. There will be instructions available when you show up. You will provide your own mask and chair (I will have an extra 1 or 2 chairs and masks if needed)
