Shelter asks residents to donate gifts

Original post made on Dec 9, 2008

The link on the Tri-valley Haven website says that the deadline for holiday gift donation is Dec. 8th/9th, since this is when the gifts will be distributed. Since this article just appeared today, Dec. 9th, I think that some might be discouraged from donating to this worthy cause, since it appears it might be too late (already!). I'd love to donate, so if someone from the Pleasanton Weekly could clarify and print this information, I think it would be really helpful for others who are interested in donating. Thank you.

I just bought health insurance from Touchstone Benefits in Pleasanton(699-0675). Chas will donate half his commission to any charity you choose. Ended up being $57 per month, every month, for me and the charity I chose.
