Hmm... Has anyone thought of a "CLOTHING RUN"?

We are already into the winter months, and many disadvantaged children need coats, including raincoats, galoshes, all of the things families end up with a ton of that have been outgrown.

Perhaps a school district, or a church could be chosen as a delivery point - making the donated things more direct then say, the Salvation Army.

Or even possibly a military base.....

Many enlisted families live hand to mouth at times, and such things if in good shape would go a very long way to helping a lot of grateful troops families.

-Just an idea.

This is an interesting idea. We could do this by County and donate the items collected in that county.

What do you think Board Members?

If you have a base near you - your best points of contact (which would be listed in the base directory) are FIRST the base Chaplains office. That is who I would contact first. Then there is also ARMY, NAVY, or AIR FORCE Relief. But the Chaplains are a lot more direct.

Barry how about looking into this clothing drive for the chapter. Maybe you can get some input from the Air Force members of the chapter.

Hey it was decided early on that the cl would have an office for 1 year then we would change. This way we feel that the chapter will not be a one person chapter.

He won the election by a landslide, great guy. Bust his chops when he needs it. lol
