This year, we are contributing to a charity drive hosted by Catholic Charities. “Code Blue” occurs in harsh weather situations when it is so wet or cold, or both, that it is a danger to those who must try to survive outside in the elements in Sonoma County. To assist with these needs, we will be collecting winter gear to deliver to Catholic Charities, which they will then distribute to the homeless during the difficult winter months. We are expecting a very wet winter this year, and the rain is often harder on the homeless than the cold.

If you would like to join us in donating, items can be dropped off at the office until December 2, 2016. The items most appreciated are:

  • Tarps
  • Sleeping bags
  • Rain ponchos, rain boots, and umbrellas
  • Jackets and coats
  • Shoes
  • Backpacks
  • Hats, gloves, and hand warmers
