Wild Card/Thursday — 7/20/06

Any Mouse, Dan of the County, and others got a good thing going this afternoon re: getting behind the SOS from the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery. Lucinda Kay sent out this SOS: “The Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery is in dire need of baby formula. There are just a few cans left on the shelf. It’ll be a long week ahead if we don’t get the shelves filled. Can you please put a call out to your contacts and friends and make a request on our behalf? We need Enfamil with iron and/or lipil. We are now caring for up to sixteen children at a time. All of these children are at risk of abuse or neglect. Thankfully, their parents are brave enough to recognize they need us. Thanks for any assistance you can offer.” You can find her phone numbers and e-mail address below. Several already have responded to the SOS, including DOTC, who challenged all elected officials to meet his gift of $50 worth of formula, and CDA Mom, who will match the total giving (within reason). The SR’s CDA office will serve as a collection point. Bring it on. Now, for your Wild Card …
