Blanket (and more) Drive returns

The Wasco County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is hosting its fifth annual Blanket Drive. All items collected from this drive will be donated to The Warming Place in The Dalles, and to Gilliam and Sherman County Emergency Management.

The Warming Place is also in need of warm socks. Other warming items (such as coats and gloves) will also be accepted.

Come to the parking lot at 523 East 3rd St. (across the street from Sawyer’s True Value) on Jan. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donors can simply pull up to the curb to drop off new or gently used (and washed) blankets, socks and other warming items.
