SAN LUIS OBISPO — This December will mark the 21st consecutive year that the San Luis Obispo community will generously provide homeless with a decadent home-cooked Christmas Day dinner along with live entertainment. More importantly, for the past two decades, this occasion has been used as a means of providing much-needed winter clothing care packages to the homeless community.
Help us to continue this tradition by donating to the winter clothing care package fund. All donations will be used for the purchase of care package items so that we can provide each homeless guest with a brand new: sleeping bag, hooded sweatshirt, winter jacket, socks, underwear and toiletries. These items make a tremendous difference in helping local homeless survive our cold, wet winters.
You can donate by going to the United Way of San Luis Obispo County website at www.unitedwayslo.org/carepackages. Donations can be made under the ‘Care Packages for Christmas’ section. Also, checks can also be mailed to United Way San Luis Obispo
PO Box 14309
San Luis Obispo, CA 93406.
Please write “Care Packages for Christmas” on the memo line.
All donations are tax-deductible. For more information about this event, contact Sheri Eibschutz at 805-594-1999.
