County Partners with Foodbank to Accept PPE

These stories remind me of that old saying- It will be a great day when schools have all the funding they needs and the US Army needs to have bake sales to raise money...... You'd think the government would have this as one of their core functions, but the feds dropped the ball and now we find out that Gov Brown got rid of all of the medical supplies that Shwarzenegger put together for just this purpose. LA Times Story from this weekend.
