coat donation

Coats for Sandy was a drive put together by a Jackson man who had lived in the storm stricken area before moving here – and he hoped people would respond.  In less than a week of that drive, Dan Caruso says local residents contributed enough coats and clothing that it will be a challenge to fit them all in the 24-foot an that will take the donations to those communities that have been decimated.  However, Caruso says funds are still needed to help buy incidentals like toothbrushes and other personal hygiene items, and to help pay for the gas to take the donations to the East Coast.  Caruso says a benefit is planned for December 1st, but donation cans have been placed at several businesses including Blue Spruce Cleaners, Sidewinders, and Creekside Deli.  Details about the benefit, including items donated for auction, will be announced after they are finalized.

  • Test new gear before you buy it - October 29, 2014
    Don’t just buy your gear because it looks good. Buy it only if it fits you properly. Hiking boots that don’t fit you well will give you blisters, and you’ll spend your entire trip sitting around in camp, dreading the walk back out.
