Girlfriends Care

COATS FOR KIDS NEEDED!  One of My Favorite local charity Girlfriends Care and my gal/founder Gini Craig is asking for coats and other clothing items for kids in need. Here's the scoop....As winter and the holiday season are approaching, we're participating in a collection campaign to collect NEW JACKETS, SWEATSHIRTS, PAJAMAS AND UNDERWEAR for children who are taken into protective custody by a division of SD County Welfare Services, referred to as "Drug Endangered Children".

The drive is being coordinated by Cpl. Darbie Ernst of the Carlsbad Police Department plus some of our Girlfriends have family and friends who work there. SO, let's pitch in and see what kind of difference we can make to these children ages Newborn to 17 years who often come into the system with nothing to call their own.

WHAT: New jackets, sweatshirts, pajamas and underwear for sizes Newborn to 17 years.

WHEN: Beginning October 15 through October 30th! (I wanted to give you a jumpstart on shopping this weekend!)

WHERE: Either of the donation drop sites below or the Carlsbad Police Department at 2560 Orion Way, Carlsbad.
