Socks sought for domestic violence victims
The California Victim Compensation Program is hosting a Socks for Survivors drive during October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Survivors often are unable to take clothing with them when they flee dangerous situations, leaving many in transitional housing and shelters without basic supplies. Collected socks will be dispersed to organizations that offer domestic violence victims emergency shelter, crisis counseling and information. New, packaged socks can be dropped off at:
▪ CalVCP Headquarters, 400 R St., first floor lobby, Sacramento
▪ The office of Gov. Jerry Brown, state Capitol, first floor, Suite 1173, Sacramento
▪ Chicory Tea and Coffee, 11th and L streets, Sacramento
▪ California Department of Managed Health Care, 980 Ninth St., No. 500, Sacramento
For those with Columbus Day off work, it’s a good day for heading to the San Francisco to watch the sailboats on the bay. The high today in Sacramento is expected to be a toasty 92 degrees. It’s the Bay area’s summer with a high of 79 degrees expected this afternoon.
Computer class for seniors scheduled
A free Cyber Senior Computer Class is scheduled from 10 to 11 a.m. in the computer lab of Yolo County’s Arthur F. Turner Community Library, 1212 Merkley Ave., West Sacramento.
