Helping Hands of the Thin Blue Line

Sat, September 16, 20178:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Oneonta Police Department and the Blount County Sheriff's Office, in cooperation with Anchors Church, the Blount County Civitans, and WCRL 95.3, will be accepting donations of certain items at the Anchors Church campus on Saturday, September 16, from 8 a.m. to noon.

These items will be used for families that are in need when encountered by law enforcement.

The organizations are requesting assistance in an on-going effort to provide aid and comfort to less fortunate members of our community. Below is a list of items that will be accepted.

• Air mattresses
• Pillows
• Bedding
• Men's clothing for all seasons
• Women's clothing for all seasons
• Children's clothing for all seasons

All items need to be new at the time of donation. No food items or money will be accepted.
