Let's beging the season of giving

With two great ways to show how much we care for our community

Adopt a family: The Boys and Girls Clubs of Monterey County are seeking for individuals or businesses that want to sponsor Club members and their immediate family. Each sponsor is given the name of one or more children and a list of items the child needs. Sponsors then go shopping and drop off their donated items unwrapped. Volunteers come to the Seaside Clubhouse on Dec. 12 to wrap gifts.

Or, if you have no time for shopping, you can make a monetary donation to the club's Holiday Fund. In 2010, the Boys and Girls Club sponsored over 120 families. For more information about Adopt-a-Family or to volunteer to gift wrap, click here or call 394-5171.

Clothe our Own: Two local fitness outfits are conducting a coats and blankets outreach to "Clothe our Own" this Sunday, Nov. 6, from 4 to 7 pm. at Fitness Zoe West, 3074 Del Monte Blvd., Marina.

Donate your gently used or a new coat or new blanket to benefit Dorothy’s Place, Salinas, a place that serves dozens of people every day with food, shelter, and dignity.
