Once again the RCB will be doing a toy run for the Sacramento Children's Receiving Home, cooking hot dogs and hamburgers for the kids, the help, (and us) on December 13. It's a Saturday, a week after our club meeting and our club Christmas dinner, and of course I'm looking for a few volunteers to help set up and do some cooking. It's such a humbling experience cooking for those kids, who are not at the home through any fault of their own, they truly seem to enjoy the barbecue. One girl last year told us that it was the best thing to happen to her since she got there.

For gift ideas, check the forum for wish lists from the receiving home, but as always, gift cards are very welcomed by all. They like movie cards, Target, Walmart, even fast food, and remember, most of the kids are actually older, up to 18 or more. They have also told me in the past that plus size clothing in both sexes is always needed. The SCRH cannot send any child home without extra socks, underwear, shirts, pants, pajamas and personal hygiene items, so they need those items all year round.

Here's the proposed ride to the Sacramento Children's Receiving Home. If the weather cooperates, we'll leave A&S around 10 a.m., ride up around the Wise Road area, and end up at the receiving home about noon.

Thank you all for participating, and let's make it a great day for the kids (and us, too).
