Helping Hands Disaster Relief Foundation

Posted @ 2:22 PM

Helping Hands Disaster Relief Foundation is sponsoring a "FREE STORE" for survivors of the wildfires to "shop" for items they need to rebuild this Saturday, November 10th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mt. Olive Lutheran Church and Preschool in Poway.

DONATION DROP-OFF: We are able to accept donations on Friday, November 9th from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Mt. Olive Church as well as from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. prior to the start of the Free Store. If you have donations and are unable to make it to Mt. Olive Church at these specified times, contact me at jefjaxlake@cox.net to schedule a drop-off at my house (12944 Camino Del Valle, Poway 92064).

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: Our Volunteer Coordinators are: Diedre Mikkelson (1accutrac@cox.net) or 858-829-1316, Sue Peterson at jstzpete@aol.com or Cindy Light at clight@san.rr.com or 858-547-0199.

Below are the times we will need volunteers specifically:
We will need drivers (with large vehicles) on Friday, November 9th at 12:30 p.m. to meet at Price Self Storage (located on Murphy Canyon Road - close to Qualcomm Stadium) to pack up trucks/vans, etc. with donated goods and deliver them to Mt. Olive Church.

Donation sorters for Friday, November 9th from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Volunteers to help set up the Free store from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 10th.

Volunteers to help at the Free Store at various stations/tables to help fire victims and families (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) on Saturday, November 10th.

BOXES: If you have any boxes (moving boxes, xerox paper boxes or any larger boxes) or access to boxes, we would love to use them! Boxes can be brought to Mt. Olive Church during the same drop off times listed above prior to the event. It is easier for the families to bring their items to their car if they have boxes to transport them.

BAGS: Any large plastic bags (garbage bags) can be used as well.

MONETARY DONATIONS: We are also accepting gift cards for grocery stores, Target, Walmart, local restaurants as well as cash donations made payable to Helping Hands Disaster Relief Foundation. ALL donations will go directly to the fire victims.
