Wasco County Blanket Drive Saturday

The Wasco County Medical Reserve Corps is hosting its 9th Annual Blanket Drive Saturday at the former Chronicle building at Third and Federal in downtown The Dalles from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  All items collected will be donated to The Warming Place in The Dalles, which distributes them to those in need.  Donors can simply pull up to the curb to drop off their items, and volunteers will be outside the building to collect them.  In addition to warm blankets and socks, the Warming Place is also looking for sleeping bags, tarps, tents, warm coats, hats, gloves and travel-size soap and shampoo.  All items should be new or gently used and washed, and in good condition.  All donors are asked to wear a mask and minimize contact when dropping off donations.
