Newsletter November – December 2014: Supporting the San Diego Food Bank this Holiday Season
Supporting the San Diego Food Bank this Holiday Season
First 5 San Diego is proud to once again sponsor the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank’s Holiday Food Drive. The food drive aims to assist the hundreds of thousands of San Diego residents living in poverty. So many of them, it turns out, are young children.
During the holiday season, we’re increasingly conscious of the desire to help those in need. As an organization dedicated to bettering the lives of San Diego’s youngest residents, we see the need for year-round assistance. When kids go to school hungry, we know they’re not off to a great start. With that in mind, we’re excited to ignite the spirit of giving with the Holiday Food Drive 2014.
This season, consider giving what you can to this extremely worthy cause. The San Diego Food Bank will be collecting nonperishable food items in clearly marked red bins at Vons and Stater Bros. grocery stores. You can also stop by their distribution location at 9850 Distribution Ave. in San Diego between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. To make a secure online donation, log onto www.sandiegofoodbank.org.
Know that your donation is going to feed our neighbors in San Diego, making for a better holiday season for all!
