No hunger for the holidays
Tri-City Volunteers has launched a food drive to totally abolish hunger at least for one day this year. In cooperation with the Tri-City Interfaith Council, food and clothing barrels are being distributed throughout the Tri-Cities and donations of non-perishable food items, clothing and cash donations are requested.
The need is greater than ever as many who have been generous throughout the years are finding the economic climate difficult for themselves. Whatever can be spared for others is appreciated. In a ten month period, Tri-City Volunteers distributed 1,784 bag lunches and assisted over 120 individuals with clothing and furniture every month!
Our community is resilient and many of our clients are in temporary need of help. You can be the key to responding to their needs. Your local faith community, business or workplace can request a food and clothing barrel from Tri-City Volunteers or items can be dropped off at First Christian Church of Fremont at 36600 Niles Boulevard on Fridays from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from 12noon - 5 p.m.
Donations can always be dropped off at Tri-City Volunteer offices at 37350 Joseph Street in Fremont.
