Peters and BrownThe Boomer and The Babe is keeping an eye on the great things that are happening in Phoenix, particularly in the west valley.  We will let you know when we need your help, and this is one of those times.

The recent hurricane in Mexico has caused untold destruction and devastation.  If an effort to help our neighbors to the south We Are Family Thrift Store and Distribution Center in Sun City Arizona (a 501 c 3 non profit charity) has undertaken a massive rescue effort to help the displaced families in the cities of San Carlos and Guaymas,  Mexico. Thousands of people are directly affected by the storm and many are living in the streets.

“We are trying to send 10-20 semi-trucks loaded with aid to the area” stated Marion Widger, founder of We Are Family.  “The first truck left our Coolidge Arizona facility and is on its way to Mexico now,” he said.

We Are Family is asking that all families in the West Valley help the residents of the devastated area. Any donations of blankets, pillows, clothing (all sizes), household items, baby food, bottled water, diapers, hygiene products, pots, pans, first aid kits, and almost any other item you can think of is desperately needed.  Many people are literally starting from scratch.

As soon as they have enough donations to fill a truck it will be on its way.  So please take anything you can spare to the thrift store to assist in this worthwhile effort.
