You in on this??
Starting this weekend at Community, we’ll doing something so simple and practical to help the children of our Valley. The Hemet Unified School District has a “District Closet.” When I asked them how we could help and what they needed most, they shocked me with their answer.
I thought it would be coats, especially as we head into winter. Instead, they need “new underwear and socks” for the children. Wow.
The cool thing is, it’s a need we can all help meet. It’s a need that shows how impoverished many of the families in our valley really are. So, here we go! Go buy some new kids underwear and socks (any sizes) and bring them this weekend. We’ll be collecting these items throughout November.
