I am a teacher in Mt. View, but live in Palo Alto. There are many kids who have so little who live in the city. Please donate anything you can. It will make many children so happy at Christmas.

I am wondering ~if there are any left over donations that don't get picked up by the Mt. View families, perhaps the police could donate the remainder of the gifts to the Santa Clara County Childrens Shelter in San Jose...I think that would be totally appropriate and appreciated by the children there, going through trama, especially at this time of year.
