Sock/Underwear Drive for TACO

March 7- 25
Bin: In front of the Library

TACO (Third Avenue Charitable Organization) is an amazing organization serving the homeless here in San Diego. Many of our homeless are mentally ill, veterans of the armed services and others living on the streets. A sock (new mens white socks to the knee please) and underwear (new, all sizes, men and women) drive would help out so very much as the weather this year has been cold and wet. Please consider donating outside of the library. We will be collecting for the month of March - as the wind whips and the rain comes down, remember those who are outside in the weather!

Any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Barb Mulvany at [email protected] or (480) 282 7731.
