December 5, 2016 (El Cajon) - The East County Transitional Living Center is holding a blanket and linen drive for the center’s formerly homeless residents. Donations of new twin or full linens or blankets can be brought to Cal Fire Fire stations at several East County locations by December 15 (See flyer below) or you can drop them off at the ECTLC, located at 1527 East Main Street in El Cajon.
The center’s residents are going through the ECTLC life-transforming programs.”Once homeless, they are now learning to become productive citizens - breaking the generational patterns of poverty,” says Mary Moran. “The program is faith-based but has been successful in guiding residents to contribute to society.
There is a constant need for blankets and linens hundreds of families in transition, as well as individuals in need. Last year, 32 babies were born at the ECTLC—all formerly homeless who found refuge at the center and gave birth to healthy babies, says Moran.
