Shepherd’s Heart Food Bank will be holding a canned food drive at key locations in Cottonwood from March 22nd through April 19th.
Shepherd’s Heart, a part of the Cottonwood First Baptist Church and Cottonwood Creek Watershed Group, is all about meeting needs; providing food, support and valuable information to those of the Cottonwood area. With the opening of its doors in 2007, Shepherd’s Heart began assisting many of the Cottonwood families who lack the transportation to reach the much larger assistance programs, such as A.C.C.A located in Anderson.
In an effort to keep supporting its community and those in need, a community canned food drive is being launched to keep the shelves stocked through these difficult times.
It is asked that you bring non-perishable, canned and dry goods (please no glass, homemade, or opened items) to our drop-off locations and give back to your local community.
You may bring items to: Elegant Bean (20633 Gas Point Rd Ste C1, Cottonwood), Tri-Counties Bank (3349 Main Street, Cottonwood), Holiday Market (20635 Gas Point Rd., Cottonwood), or Cottonwood Creek Watershed Group (3645 Main Street, Cottonwood).
According to the 2007 census, Cottonwood’s population is 3,236. There, 15.3% of the population and 18.3% of the children live at or below the poverty level.
Community involvement is essential to the success of Shepherd’s Heart and your support is greatly appreciated.
Those wishing to volunteer their time or make financial contributions should call Cottonwood Creek Watershed Group at 347-6637. Donations of food or clothes may also be dropped off at the Shepherd’s Heart Food Bank (3320 Brush St. Cottonwood, CA) Tuesday’s 9:00am-12:00pm.
