You can’t hardly help talk about Ramona Events, these days, without talking about the recent flash floods that devastated families and parts of the community, last weekend. As is typical of Ramona Food and Clothes Closet, they are “Johnny on the Spot,” with immediate, practical assistance to families in crisis in Ramona. Vesna Curry of the Ramona Food & Clothes Closet recently announced that:
The Ramona Food and Clothes Closet Foundation has set aside a fund to assist those who are in need due to the recent flooding of 7/18-19, 2015. They have created an application process to have those affected list what their needs are both in goods as well as monetary funds. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis. The applications are available at the store or you can request one at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will e-mail one to you.
For those of you who would like to help by providing a monetary donation please make your check payable to the Ramona Food and Clothes Closet Foundation. All donations are tax deductible. Tax ID #46-4720212.
Thank you for any and all help that you can provide. “Because You Gave, We Can Give.”
One of Ramona’s most prolific local humanitarian organizations, The Ramona Food & Clothes Closet operates a Thrift Store in Ramona on the corner of 8th Street and Main at 773 Main Street Ramona. From that thrift store location, they also provide emergency food and clothing to families in crisis in our community. Their Foundation provides financial grants to local groups and organizations that further their mission to “serve as a humanitarian organization providing emergency food, clothing, and other resources to aid individuals and low income families in Ramona, Santa Ysabel, Julian, Ranchita, Borrego Springs, Warner Springs and outlying rural areas. ”
They accept donations of food, clothing and household goods (and checks and cash) at their location and you can also click the paypal “donate” link here and at the top right corner of any page of their website.
Needless to day, this flooding has put Ramona back in the news lately.
Here are some feature news stories we can share:
Stay safe, Ramona. It is my fervant hope that friends and neighbors affected by this flooding receive a great blessing over the coming weeks and months as they learn the value of small town living. It is with faith that we remember all the times in the past that our community has pulled together. Ramonans won’t let any one family suffer more than we can help it.
With that said, it is reported that Ramona has also gone viral on social media…..is it too soon?
