Wanted: Gently Used Clothing for Roosevelt School’s Fire Victims

It is time for some early spring cleaning — all for a good cause.

At least five Roosevelt Elementary School families lost their homes in the Tea Fire. Other Roosevelt families have friends and neighbors who lost everything. So let’s get those closets cleaned out. Bring gently used clothes and shoes and deposit them in the big blue recycling bins in the parking lot at the school, 1190 Laguna St., before Friday.

The families also need suitcases, toiletries, stuffed animals, sleeping bags, work gloves, shoes and cameras.

Another option is to purchase gift certificates to local stores and turn them into the office. Macy’s is offering a 50 percent discount to all fire victims — so donations will go twice as far.

The giveaway will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in Roosevelt’s cafeteria.

For more information, call Gloria Cavallero at 805.687.9957 or 805.252.5555, Lynn Montgomery at 805.687.7811 or 805.252.3171 or Jeanette Hirschberg at 805.899.3444.

Lynn Montgomery is a Roosevelt Elementary School parent.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
