Tent City 4
(STATE of EMERGENCY)
Tent City 4 is in need of your help!
Tent City 4
is in process of working with a new service provider for the cleaning of our
camp blankets every week, this may take some time. We, however, have new camper’s
arriving daily that need clean blankets upon admittance. We need help quick short
term help with providing clean blankets to meet this critical need.
What you can do to help Tent City 4:
Help us by cleaning
any number of blankets you can from as few as 4 to as many as you may like. The
camp will be able to launder up to 600 Blankets a week in the near future but
for now each new camper needs just four blankets to stay warm, dry and safe.
Please use our TC4 Blanket Laundry Pledge Form (see reverse side) for the
easiest way to help immediately.
