"This Club Saves Lives" a group of Carmel High School students has taken it upon themselves to help out their community during the crisis. They are currently doing a food drive, as well as providing bags of food for those in need. If you would like to help, donate, or receive, read the message they posted below
To our beloved community,
In the wake of our world’s current affairs, there is a team that is mobilizing to respond to this crisis. We are making plans to receive, box, and deliver non-perishable food items, household essentials, and new art supplies to our families and community members in need, especially in our outlying populations.
If you would like to help, please refer to the Amazon wishlist https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3MI30ZGA0JIAF?ref_=wl_share to respond to this crisis, so we can start stockpiling items for immediate disbursement this Monday morning. In addition, we will be receiving non-perishable food items and other household essentials at the Carmel Middle School gym between 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. If those times do not work for you, you can also drop off donations at the Crossroads Starbucks, Lemos 76 Station on Carmel Rancho, or CV Business Center, which we will make arrangements to pick up.
If you are hesitant to donate items in person, you can also donate money to This Club Saves Lives https://thisclubsaveslives.org/fundraising/, a non-profit club at Carmel High School. This situation is extremely fluid, but right now we are distributing items on Mondays and Thursdays, around 11:30 a.m., to Post Ranch employee housing units, Big Sur River Inn, and Cachagua Children’s Center parking lot. If you live closer to Carmel Middle School, you can also pick up bags/boxes of supplies on Mondays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
