If many of you are feeling helpless about the recent mudslides in our community, like myself, this is the best way to give back. After doing extensive research of how I can contribute, I found out that they don’t need volunteers as much as people need supplies to account for everything that was lost. Monetary donations are the best way, so that the funds can go to things that are really needed, and you can designate in your written check or online where you want the money to be directed. If a financial donation isn’t possible, I know that there is a local Red Cross office on State St while they are also set up at the City College, accepting donations of clothing and other helpful supplies. Please keep everyone in the community in your hearts, and anything you can give is worth while. Text Red Cross to 91999 for a $10 donation.
