The pantry and store are open weekdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information and/or to volunteer, call 830-833-5269 or visit online blancogoodsam.org.

How to Help Your Neighbors
When they Really Need You
Blanco residents have a chance to participate in Red Cross volunteer orientation courses offered occasionally at BUMC. The courses provide an overview of what the Red Cross does during and between disasters, and the many ways a volunteer can choose to train and help.

Volunteers do lots of jobs: providing clothing, helping repair homes, arrange housing for victims, feeding hungry survivors, operating emergency shelters, connecting survivors with friends and family, and the multitude of behind-the-scenes jobs like delivering supplies or handling paperwork.

The trainings are free, but pre-registration will assure there are enough materials for everyone. To put your name on the list for the next course, call Terry Faglie in the Hill Country Chapter office at 830-257-4677.


Tots Need Toys Christmas Outreach

Volunteers help set up toys for distribution and act as hosts, shopping assistants, wrappers, etc. Planning begins in October of each year, so see Cerice Spivey to let her know when you are able to help.
