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