Remnants of the Past
A big thank you to everyone who supported us at Remnants of the Past! Over a hundred volunteers joined us for the weekend long event to raise money for Imagination Library. Special thanks to Judy Watkins and Cheryl Cuming of Remnants of the Past, Jill LeMieux, our amazing volunteer coordinator, and members of Alpha Phi Omega, California Conservation Corps, United Way Youth Board, National Honors Society at SLO High, SLO Motion Ultimate and SLO Core Ultimate. The event was a great success for children's literacy in SLO County, as all of the children on our Imagination Library waiting list can begin the program!
Coats for Christmas Day
For the past 16 years, the San Luis Obispo community has generously provided our County's homeless with a wonderful home-cooked Christmas Day dinner, live entertainment and much needed care packages containing brand new sleeping bags, hooded sweatshirts, rain gear and toiletries. The Jewish Community initiated this event in order to serve those with the greatest need on Christmas Day and their goal again this year is to be able to help those without shelter to stay warm and protected from the elements during the upcoming winter months. Donations of money to help provide warm coats are now being accepted. Contributions can be made via the United Way of San Luis Obispo County website, by calling United Way with a credit card number at (805) 541-1234 or checks may be sent to PO Box 14309, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406 and earmarked, "Coats". The coats cost $20 each for small through large sizes and $25 for XL through 4XL sizes. For more information about this event, please contact Sheri Eibschutz at (805) 594-1999.
