Thanksgiving this year is a bigger challenge than ever according to my friends at the Foothill Unity Center. They feed literally hundreds of families every month, but this Holiday will be their toughest for a variety of reasons. Last year they fed 1,000 families. I won’t dwell on the “why’s” but will give you some ways to help.
First up is the “Put The Fork in Hunger” food drive in Pasadena to benefit the food banks at the Foothill Unity Center. This food drive is going on NOW and all the details are in the link to their FB Page. In short bring your non-perishable food items to 200 Bellafontaine Plaza and they will get it to the Foothill Unity Center to include in their packages for needy families.
The Foothill Unity Center needs a ton of help, not just food, but toys for the Christmas party they will hold as well. This takes thousands of volunteer hours to get ‘er done. They hneed help sorting food, making family packages and distribution to the families itself. Sign up to volunteer HERE.
