A huge hug to Fallbrookians who helped out

 

Last updated 9/24/2017 at Noon



A big thank you to all who recently helped out the hurricane victims in Texas and Florida.

With the horrific hurricanes that have brought devastating damage to the state of Texas, Florida and the Caribbean islands, Fallbrookians rolled up their sleeves and helped out tremendously and we thank you.

Because of your kindness, generosity and wanting to help others you have donated enough items to fill over 145 boxes (medium and large) and they're on the way now.

Items included inflatable kayak and boat, sleeping bags, canned food, diapers, boots, shoes, 40 hand crocheted blankets, clothes for women, men and children, kids' books and toys, jackets, work gloves, hygiene products, towels, shovels, pots and pans, back packs, brooms and rakes, plus much more. Winter is coming and a need for warm clothing will be ongoing.

Several local citizens have driven some of the packed boxes to specific areas in Texas, while another offered her four stall horse trailer to cart some boxes down south.

So when these items finally reach the various destinations, the givers won’t know the various folks who will receive these items, but the important part is that we are all brothers and sisters on this tiny blue marble floating in space and there is goodness in the people’s hearts.

The Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, Friends of Fallbrook, social media, churches, service organizations and your Fallbrook village folks all stepped up to the plate to aid the victims.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world, for indeed it is the only thing that ever has” ..Margaret Mead

Stay tuned for more information on how you can help and more plans are in the making.

Thank you all.
