Got Warmth?

You must have something in your coat closet you haven’t worn in a while, right? Betty Chinn can find someone who needs it.

With cold weather upon us, the 5th annual KSLG Warm & Fuzzy Clothing Drive is this Friday, December 7th at the North Coast Co-op in Eureka.  

Your contribution helps those in need and will stay in this area, to be distributed by Betty’s Blue Angels.

When you enter the Co-Op, the KSLG table will be the first thing you see.  Monica Topping will host from 6am-12pm, with Myles Cochrane handling 12pm-6pm. 

Chinn needs gently-worn jackets, pants, socks, sweaters, gloves and even underwear.

“As in years past, we will take just about anything within reason. Someone wanted to donate old fishing equipment once. I thanked her, but declined,” said KSLG morning host John Matthews.

“Every time I see Betty Chinn I’m overwhelmed with a desire to give her an enormous hug, but I always get a little tongue-tied. I mean, here’s a person that’s hung out with POTUS and Bono,” added afternoon host Myles Cochrane.

“Anytime we can help her in any way… warm clothes, a few extra bucks… anything, it makes a positive, humanitarian impact on our neck of the redwoods.”
