MILL VALLEY, CA
The OLMC chapter of RAOC cleaned house with a Lenten Drive. The idea was that each day of the 40 days of Lent members would remove one item they didn’t need—from their closet, their pantry, their garage, their cupboard—and put it aside. At the end of Lent, we brought all the items to our meeting, sorted them, and gave them to various orgs and charities. Canned goods went to our St Vincent de Paul pantry, clothes to Bloom and Goodwill, and household items to the St Vincent de Paul chapter in Sonoma to help the fire victims. Several members hit 40 items in 40 days, and both their garages and the recipients are better for it.
