Nov. 22: Locals to assemble 1,000 Personal Care Packs Thanksgiving morning at Direct Relief warehouse in Goleta
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 16 – From 9 to 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22), the Santa Barbara community is invited to join Billy Baldwin and Direct Relief in packing 1,000 personal care kits filled with basic hygiene items for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
The packs will be sent to Direct Relief clinic partners on the East Coast who have requested basic supplies for their patients – many of whom are still displaced or without power and heat. To date, Direct Relief has sent more than 25 shipments valued at more than $500,000 to clinics and health centers devastated by Sandy.
Other upcoming community events include a dental kit packing day on #givingtuesday, Nov. 27, and a holiday care packing event Dec. 5 and 6. For more information or to sign up, call (805) 964-4767 or email Martha Angeles at firstname.lastname@example.org.
