|City of Anaheim Participates in Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank|
ANAHEIM, CA - (March 23, 2010) - The City of Anaheim is proud to support the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and this year is again participating in the “Feed the Need in Anaheim” citywide food drive. From now through March 26, 16 drop-off points in the City will be available for citizens to donate canned and dry and packaged foods.
The City of Anaheim is taking a proactive step to make a difference in the local community. Each month in Orange County, more than 450,000 men, women and children are at risk of going hungry. The City has participated in the Second Harvest Food Bank food drive for approximately 10 years.
Local businesses, schools, religious organizations, service clubs, non-profit organizations, and community groups are encouraged to support this worthy endeavor. Food drive drop-off locations include City Hall, Anaheim West Tower, the Anaheim Police Department main station, select City libraries and community centers, as well as private businesses.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is dedicated to alleviating hunger, developing programs to increase awareness of the hunger problem and providing an opportunity for volunteerism and community involvement.
For a complete list of drop-off locations, please contact the Anaheim Community Services Department at (714) 765-5191. For more information on Second Harvest Food Bank, please contact Lorina Smith at the Food Bank at (714) 771-1343.
