Do you remember the devastation in the form of FIRE last October?

Here is a quote from Gena Barney the owner of Cool Scrapbook Stuff:  “The witch fire (the one closest to me) burned 1040 homes, 414 outbuildings, 239 vehicles, plus 70 homes and 24 outbuildings were damaged — i believe that approx 500 of those homes were burned in rancho bernardo (where i live! – i live less than 6 miles from my store). ”

Gena, the owner of Cool Scrapbook Stuff in Poway, is organizing an event for the people who lost their homes in those devastating fires last October*.  She rented a 20,000 square foot storefront in her shopping center. She has been collecting scrapbook donations to give to those people who lost EVERYTHING.  The response has been amazing.  Customers donated scrapbook product and many manufacturers donated huge amounts of product. Two dozen scrapbook stores in So Cal are also helping out with this effort.

*Update: this event is for all California Residents from losses from Fires. NOTE… FEMA/Red Cross paperwork/ID is required!  Check CSS website for more info!

There is only one problem.  She is having trouble finding people to physically man the event.  She needs help!!
The event is being held at 12369 Poway Rd, Poway, CA 92064. 
The dates are as follows:
Friday, February 22 – Sunday, February 24 and
Friday, February 29 – Sunday, March 2
They are scheduling two shifts per day.  You can volunteer to work from 10:30 am – 3:00 pm or 3:00 pm – 7:30 pm. If you are feeling extra generous you can work all day.  Gena would appreciate any time you can give.
If you belong to any other scrapbook message boards please send this message out!
I know this is last minute but lets step up to the plate and help our fellow scrapbook sisters who lost everything.  Give the gift of your time.  If you can help, please call Gena at 858-679-9100.
