A Memo From PARC
A memo from our friends at Peoples Action for Rights & Community, Eureka:
You may have noticed that we didn’t send out a rent/bill email for December. That was due to super-busy-ness, and we got the money together thanks to a large donation. However, PARC can only continue to function with $$ donations and various other types of contributions. Given that it is the rainy, cold season (and it sure has been cold!), there is a need for blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothes, warm boots, tarps (without holes), and raingear. Also, we encourage folks who have houses, garages, yards, or other “private property” space to offer it to one or more people for nighttime rest. (Please see the attached Safe Sleeping Space call-out from 2009. It has helpful ideas).
Other needs. Maybe you could help with one of them:
FIVE padlocks with keys. PARC recently acquired 5 lockers for the yard because there is no place for people to put their belongings while they walk around and take care of life.
LAUNDRY washed and dryed! (mostly towels and sometimes clothes for the “take what you need” closet)
Soup/Eating bowls (ceramic, glass), preferably used, from thrift stores or home cabinets.
Laundry Soap natural please, preferably powder, preferably Bio-Kleen or Country Save
Dish Soap natural please
Multi-Pure Filter CB6 I think we can buy it for about $50 through the people who donated the filter 4 years ago (such an awesome contribution) Please call or email if you want to help us get that.
Packing Tape, Duct Tape, Painter’s Tape
100% recycled paper for printing/copying
Volunteers! one day a week would be great! Please call or email to discuss.
We know it is “THAT time of the year” – Holiday season for many, Harvest season for Humboldt
Please donate if you can. And encourage those who have more resources to contribute.
