North Bay Wildfire Donation Drive
Thu, Oct 12 12:30pm
Addison Elementary

While we experience the unhealthy air quality here in Palo Alto, it is hard to imagine the devastation of the families directly impacted by the wildfires in the North Bay counties.  


As part of the Addison community, we can help these families feel a bit more at ease, a little less anxious, and a lot more hopeful with a donation drive at Addison.  All donations will be sorted & delivered on Monday afternoon to various locations in need.


When:  this Friday (before & after school) & Monday (before school only)

Where:  in front of the Addison MP Room

What:  at this time, we are focused on the most current needs.  Please donate only new items (in packages) & only the items on this list **

  • underwear & socks (all sizes - kids & adults)
  • sweatpants and/or pajamas (all sizes - kids & adults)
  • towels
  • personal hygiene products (toothbrushes, tooth paste, deodorant, baby wipes, soap)
  • versatile gift cards - Target, CVS, Walgreens, Safeway
** A large portion of volunteer effort is distracted by sorting thru non-critical items, our goal is to have the most impact by delivering the most specific ask.  To reiterate, we are not able to accept and deliver used or unpacked items at this time.
If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Williams or Adrienne Germain.
