Calaveras County Office of Education Staff Donate Hats and Scarves to Honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month

San Andreas, CA...On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, Calaveras County Office of Education (CCOE) staff members donated 35 hats and 30 scarves to the Mark Twain Cancer Treatment and Cancer Care Center in San Andreas. Jamie Murphy, personnel assistant for CCOE, came up with the idea to hold a hat and scarf drive for local cancer patients. Murphy reached out to Mark Twain Cancer Treatment and Cancer Care Center to coordinate the donation details. The entire month of October, CCOE employees brought in hats and scarves to the donate. “I cannot express how happy I am to work with such amazing people,” Murphy said.

Smiles can be seen under the masks as staff members from both Mark Twain and CCOE commemorate the donation alongside Scott Nanik and Doug Archer.

The staff at Mark Twain Cancer Treatment Center were overwhelmed with gratitude for the donations. Lenora Casey, the nurse with whom Jamie Murphy coordinated the donation, said, “these hats and scarves will go to our cancer patients in the tri-county area. Such gestures of generosity remind us of the many reasons we love to live in Calaveras County.”

Mark Twain Medical Center President and CEO Doug Archer agreed with Casey. “Living in a small community is about people supporting each other, people helping people. This type of community collaboration is a testament to our ability to band together and help each other.”

Calaveras County Superintendent of Schools Scott Nanik approved the hat and scarf drive at CCOE. “I am very fortunate to have employees with such caring and giving spirits,” he said. “They value our community and demonstrate that every day. This is just one reason CCOE is a great place to work.”

Hats and scarves? That's nice, how does one get the word out a little better for more people to become aware of drives like this?
Two sister in-laws, both as different as night and day. One worked her entire life, double mastectomy, had plastic surgery to make herself look like before and still one of the sweetest women I've ever known. The other, 3rd generation welfare, enough medical for a double mastectomy, but that's it, and, well that's it. She too survived, but took a hard hit and doesnt understand her way of life in never wanting to work, expect others to take care of her, has left her even bitter. Sadly she's taught her daughter, her way of life.
I'm an ass, I'd rather help strangers, and do.

    The article says it was a drive among the county’s office of education staff. Start one at your own workplace or church. Am sure there are many cancer survivors or battling still that would be touched!

    There are sadly many in Calaveras who can somehow balance their mindset of government can’t tell me what to do yet expect free healthcare and services to be there for them when needed.

    The seven deadly sins

    Must really suck to have such a bitter and ugly SIL such as you. Really, all your ugliness shared here with strangers, what does that do for you? It tells us much about you though.

    …There, but for the grace of God go I…
    Is a thought I oft used to think
    As I cast a hasty, judgmental eye
    Roundabout the coffee shop
    And o'er the brim of my morning drink

    …I used to judge those so-called ‘sorry souls
    And ascribe to them sad histories
    In blissful ignorance that
    Some were likely looking back
    And doing the same to me

    …Yet with a superior sense of satisfaction
    Would I sip my McDonald's morning brew
    Until some hapless soul would draw my attraction
    Ah yes…this sorry soul will do

    …I would focus in and build upon
    My narrative about this sorry soul
    Whose life seemed sad and almost gone
    Down into life's rabbit hole

    …Oh the trials and ordeals
    That this man must daily feel
    The sting of outrageous misfortune
    That Fate of late has shared with him
    More than his fair portion

    …Alas my coffee is quaffed
    My imaginative narrative done
    I'll likely see this man (my star) no more
    And I wonder who the morrow's
    Protagonist will be
    As I walk out through the door

    …Tomorrow will dawn a brand new day
    I'll sip my Senior brew and sigh
    Select a new star for my newest play
    (I think I shall title this one like all the others)
    …"There but for the grace of God go I…"

    The seven deadly sins
    You probably have them all down.

    What is all this about the two sisters? I don't see any relevancy of this with the contents of this article.
