Call to Action!

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

We had the most fantastic Zoom meeting on Tuesday night with the amazing Congresswoman Katie Porter. I will send a newsletter about that in a few days but in the meantime, we have a Call to Action and I wanted to get this out to you ASAP:
In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, some of our members have been involved in grassroots efforts to help those most in need in Orange County. If you would like to be a part of these efforts, there are 2 supply chains you can be a part of. Both efforts will likely continue through June, if not beyond.
  • There are more unhoused and unsheltered people in Orange County now than there were before the outbreak. We are asking for supplies for courageous volunteers making rounds to unsheltered individuals, and those who are in shelter but without food. Most needed supplies include: protein bars, gatorade, wet wipes in small packs (any kind), first aid gauze pads, prepackaged single antibiotic wipes. Supplies can be delivered or dropped to the front porch c/o Lita Robinow, 6 Brisbane Way, Irvine, CA 92612. 714-293-2181 (If you are dropping to the front porch, leave it inside the walk near the bench or in that area between 9 am and 8 pm. Don't mind the barking dog and wave hello!)

  • People with sewing skills, Making Masks Central OC has been providing volunteer-made masks for medical and other front line workers, as well as high-risk populations. They have materials that can be picked up at several locations. Contact Julie Tapp, julietapp1@gmail.com to request to sew or for additional information (you can find the group on facebook as well).
