Hunger hurts and one in seven of our neighbors is facing hunger in Shasta County. Last year the local Salvation Army helped over 4235 people with holiday food assistance. The harsh reality for many Shasta County residents is they will not have food on the table this holiday season. But you can help – the local Salvation Army, KCNR 1460, the Christian Motorcyclist Association and Redding Harley Owners Group would like to invite community members to get involved by donating turkeys, hams, non-expired canned foods or dry goods to the food drive on November 4th. Donations can be brought to the Kmart Parking Lot on Hilltop Drive in Redding on November 4th from 7 am to 6 p.m.
Donate your turkeys and all holiday food items to help our neighbors in need have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas meal this year.
