United Way holds electric fan and air conditioner drive in Texas

This drive sounded like such a good idea and I immediately wanted to know more information.

Throughout my adult life, I've been involved in charity work. It feels so rewarding to give back to my community. Through my work with various organizations, like the ASPCA and Best Buddies, I've been able to meet some really great people.

On Sunday mornings, when I have some free time to myself, I like to devote some time to looking for new ways I can help others. I've found some really great events to volunteer at, like the March of Dimes Walk, just by looking in our local newspaper.

Well, just a few days ago, I was talking to my sister, Allison, who lives in Texas. She is also quite involved in various charities around the Lonestar State.

Allison was telling about how the United Way of Amarillo and Canyon is holding an electric fan and air conditioner drive that is starting Tuesday, May 14. United Way is a great charitable organization that is committed to making positive changes in communities through partnerships with government agencies, educational institutions and businesses.

My big sis told me that the drive is being held in order to help provide the elderly, handicapped and families with infants with electric fans and air conditioners in an effort to help them stay cool during those hot summer months that are notorious for plaguing Texas.

This drive sounded like such a good idea and I immediately wanted to know more information. Allison let me know that last year, this United Way drive helped provide over 100 families with cooling appliances.

I was so impressed with United Way's efforts that when I got off the phone with Allison, I went down to our church and spoke with our priest about starting a similar drive.

    • Some falking scalp needs miedcal attention from a Dermetologist. For one thing you are absolutely over shampooing his hair. I’ve been to beauty college, though I chose not to finish. Do not wash his hair more then every other day, unless it actually gets dirty, such as getting something in it. Try a shampoo that says it’s for dry hair, preferribly one that says for dandraff. All most dandraff is, is dry scalp. Buy a basic HOT OIL treatment such as St. Ives from places like wal-marts, target. Use it, see if it gets better. Don’t do it more then once a week and once the condition is gone, you’d not one to do it more then every two weeks. You can get Pure Lanolin from any pharmacist without a perscription, it’s only a few dollars for a small amount. If the hot oil doesn’t work, try actually on a day off work rubbing that into his hair and down into his scalp. See if that can help get ride of his dry scalp, which is all dandraff is. If you live in a really dry climate, try using a humidifier in the house to moisten the air. Winter cold also can cause dry scalp, so using a humidifier then can help during winter as well. Our skin needs nutrients as well thorugh our body. If you like blueberries and blackberries, eat some of them every day for several weeks. They are known to help our skin, providing needed nutriants. Above all, you can’t wash dandruff or dry scalp away, so stop over washing, as you are washing out the essential oils the scap needs and will only make the condition worse over time. If you try these things I’ve suggested over a two week period, never doing the HOT OIL more then once a week and the Lanolin more then every other day for several hours, then washing out the Lanolin. If all these things do not work, I highly recommend you consult a dermetologist as there are many skin conditions that will only heal with the proper miedcal treatment.Good Luck

    Anyhow, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.

    wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!
