Sen. Sam Blakeslee’s staff rallies behind Women’s Shelter
November 20, 2010
After reading that the San Luis Obispo Women’s Shelter was behind in their efforts to provide Thanksgiving dinner for up to 53 different families currently involved in the program, state Sen. Sam Blakeslee provided the shelter with all of the trimmings for side dishes.
“Holidays are a particularly tough time for households throughout California in this economy,” said Senator Blakeslee. “Every family, especially those working hard to get back on their feet, deserves to have a Thanksgiving meal with their loved ones.
“It’s my honor and privilege to be one of many community members who have donated to this cause. I commend Beth Raub and the entire staff at the shelter for the valuable services they provide to San Luis Obispo families throughout the entire year. They serve as a shining example of generosity and selflessness that we should all emulate.”
Further food and cash donations for the shelter’s Thanksgiving drive can be dropped off weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Business Office, 51 Zaca Lane, Suite 150, in San Luis Obispo.
A checklist of possible donation items is posted on the shelter website.
