Luigi's Italian Restaurant was mobbed ("OHHHHHHH") July 2, giving full credit for all orders picked up, delivered, or for dining in. This fundraiser was to help Pacifica Military Moms support the wounded veterans at Palo Alto VA Hospital by way of entertainment (gift cards for movie theaters that their caretakers or visiting family members can bring them to), summertime BBQs, and food brought in from local restaurants. Don’t forget to check out the updated website at PACIFICA MILITARY MOMS. They have been receiving "thank you" notes from the troops serving overseas, acknowledging the 121 care packages that the group sent out June 14. Debbie Smyser says the group will meet with the Pacifica firefighters on Linda Mar Blvd. soon to finalize a plan to gather donations and send care packages to the troops once a month (on a weeknight). This also includes collection sites at two other Pacifica firehouses, four firehouses in Daly City, and one in Brisbane! Plans will unfold on PACIFICA MILITARY MOMS, in the Pacifica Tribune, and here on Riptide after the meeting with the firefighters.
