Lots To Talk About

Original post made by Elaine Betts, Danville, on Aug 23, 2011

Packs With Love:

Packs With Love were packing with love this week as Madi and Kinsey Mascali had 45 other children show up and stuffed 400 backpacks with school supplies. Many of the children had never volunteered before and loved every moment. The back packs will be distributed to schools in need in the Bay Area giving those children less fortunate a good start to their new school year. A big thank you to all those who donated their time and brought backpacks and supplies. If you wish to contact this organization please email

Kassiry's Army:

Kassidy's Army is joining Kassidy's fight to get rid of her brain cancer. The surgery Kassidy needs is non-FDA approved; meaning insurance will not pay for the costs. Treatment will be $10,000 a month and the Merritt family cannot pay for it alone which is why they have created KASSIDY'S ARMY.
The fundraiser is called BullDawg-Opoly! This is a board game like Monopoly but centered around Centennial High School and being a bulldawg! The board games are $25 and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Kassidy Merritt. Games are expected to be available around October. If you do not want a board game you can always donate to Kassidy from her blog which is listed below. Checks can be written out to "Kassidy Merritt Donation." For more information about Kassidy, brain stem ganglioglioma, or if you wish to donate please visit her blog:
