It’s not your traditional end-of-year donation nor the favorite breakfast mom used to cook on the weekend. Pigs and blankets is a “stolen idea” from Cindy Blickle and Sean Kolb of North Valley Bank, with some Rotary spice added.

Capay Valley Rotary President Anna Del Castillo said she got the idea when she heard the story about North Valley Bank buying a pig from a young girl who couldn’t sell the animal after it was injured in an accident on its way to the Yolo County Fair. Del Castillo decided her Rotary group would buy a pig at the fair and then donate it along with warm blankets to shelters in Yolo County.

Three shelters received 150 pounds each of pork and 30 blankets. Funds for the donation were raised by the 15 Capay Valley Rotary members who meet every Friday at 7:30 a.m. at the Cache Creek Casino Resort.

The Yolo Wayfarer Center will use the pork in its daily evening meals for the community’s needy and the blankets will go on the beds in the emergency shelter, which houses 50 clients nightly, including up to five children.

The other shelters that received pigs and blankets were The Orchard in Esparto, owned and operated by Robert Brillantes, and the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center.

“When I heard about Cindy and Sean donating their pig to SADVC, I just had to do something similar for other shelters in the county,” Del Castillo said. “Our club is passionate about helping the community thrive and this was a perfect project for us.”
