Blanket and Toy Drive

The BEMCC (Binational Emergency Medical Care Committee) is hosting its annual blanket, food and toy drive to benefit families and children living in underprivileged neighborhoods throughout San Diego County and south of the border. This year’s goal is to collect at least 2,000 new blankets & toys for distribution before Christmas.

The campaign kicks off in November and runs through March of next year. Our first delivery date is Monday December 23, 2013. You are invited to accompany us. Be at BEMCC office at 8:30 a.m. at 642 Third Avenue Suite I, Chula Vista, CA 91910. We will return around 4:00 p.m. Call (619) 425-5080 to make room for you if you are planning to accompany us.

Donations of new blankets, sleeping bags, receiving blankets, food, and children’s toys are greatly appreciated. Money donations to help purchase new blankets are also accepted and are tax deductible. Money donations can be sent to the BEMCC directly at 642 Third Avenue, Suite I, Chula Vista, CA 91910.

Every year many children and elderly people die due to extreme weather cold temperatures. These families live in cardboard homes, or homes made of aluminum with leaky roofs. These are poor families who cannot afford to buy warm clothing and blankets. Your donation of a warm blanket could save a life. Donations to BEMCC’s “Operation Blanket Drive” can be made at the following locations:
•BEMCC, 642 Third Avenue, Suite I, Chula Vista, 91910
•Law Offices of Terry Singleton, 1950 5th Avenue Suite 200, San Diego, CA 92101
•San Diego Police Department Southern Division Sgt. Juan Gonzalez-(619) 424-0207

The Binational Emergency Medical Care Committee is a non-profit organization that has been in existence since 1976. The organization’s founder, Celia G. Diaz, has committed herself to the humanitarian effort of saving lives. The BEMCC’s main mission is to provide air and ground transportation to U.S. citizens who are injured while traveling in the country of Mexico, but that mission has expanded tremendously to include efforts such as organizing emergency disaster relief drives to obtain food, clothing, and blankets for the needy.
