Racetrack Backstretch Workers need help

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Backstretech workers - items badly needed


Dear Friends,

As you may know I have been passionate about the dire needs of the backstretch workers right here in our own backyard. Many of the behind the scenes workers arrived this week - some with just the clothes on their backs. I have been working for the last year with the Race Track Chaplaincy who administer to the emotional and physical needs of the backstretch workers and any help you can offer would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

The following items are in desperate need:

BLANKETS, COMFORTERS, OR SLEEPING BAGS
TOWELS
PILLOWS & PILLOWCASES
SHEETS
WARM JACKETS
SWEATSHIRTS
BLUE JEANS, ESPECIALLY MEN'S
T-SHIRTS AND POLO SHIRTS
SNEAKERS, WORK BOOTS
(Note: x-large is the biggest size we can accept)

If you are able to donate any items I will gladly get them to the workers for you. I am located at 38 Adams Street which is 2 blocks off of Nelson, adjacent to the side entrance to the track and 1 block off of Lincoln....over in the "President" streets. I have a screened porch and items can be left there. Please leave your name so the Chaplaincy can thank you for your donation.

Please feel free to pass this email on to friends who may also want to help.

With my thanks and deep appreciation,

Nancy Fritch

Is this group working with B.E.S.T. ? There seems to be overlaying concerns and we are not sure if they are all working together ....

Pool in the Pines ... how cute...
Wish that F*cker Warren hadn't cut down all those trees.
We'd have some pines today.

I agree. The damage Warren caused in the park will take decades to repair and some things will never be the same.
