Thank you to all who participated in our big Annual Garage Sale Fundraiser for People Helping People and the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter. Your valuable time and donations helped raise $3,073.10. We had no overhead. Every penny will be split between the two organizations. Half the money will go toward the People Helping People expansion of the South Bay Community Center to store the food we collect for the Wednesday food distribution to those in need and to store the medical equipment we lend out.
The other half will be put up as part of the matching funds pool at the Seventh Annual Needs ’N Wishes Holiday Fundraiser for the Maxine Lewis homeless shelter Dec. 8 at the South Bay Community Center after the Los Osos/Baywood Park Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. So mark your calendars now.
If you would like to donate items for the silent auction, bakery or Santa’s Toy Store, or to volunteer, please call us at 528-5800. Or, if you would like to sign up for a shift to ring the bell in November and December for the Salvation Army kettle in front of Vons or Ralph’s in Los Osos, please contact us. We are gearing up for the holidays now! Thank you so much!
