Hidden Valley Winter Clothing Drive
from Pam Stanley, Hidden Valley Resident
First, I’d like to thank all of you who have donated to my winter clothing drive over the years. It makes me very happy that there are many of you out there who have supported this. This year, with the pandemic, there are more people in need, so it is vital that we try to help as many as possible.
What to Donate
Men’s clothing remains the number one need, but any items for all ages, male, female and children, are accepted. During these winter months, any warm clothing, shoes, boots, hats, blankets, coats, sleeping bags, socks or gloves are needed. These people can also use hygiene products, suitcases, large purses or totes. I take these donations to the Good Shepherd’s Clothes Closet on Greenbrae Drive, in Sparks.
This year, I am also accepting donations for the Eddy House. This is a safe, non-profit refuge for young people ages 18-24. It is located on Willow Street near Renown. These kids have been removed from the foster care system, are homeless, or just plain lost souls. The Eddy House offers food, counseling, a clinic, beds, showers and much more. There are approximately 500 young people who are helped at Eddy House. You can visit their website, at eddyhouse.org, to learn how and what to donate to these youths. Any small, healthy portable food items are very appreciated.
How to Donate
Your donations can be brought to my house, at 5340 Cypress Point Drive, and left on my front porch if I am not at home. My phone number is 857-1310, if you have questions. I will accept any donations November, December, January and February. *Please make a note on your donation, so I know where to take it.
Thank you once again for your continued support.
