Local community outreach organization, Hands 4 Hope – Youth Making A Difference, held its annual Spring Food Bank Blitz on Saturday, April 2. More than 200 volunteers from Sacramento and El Dorado counties worked shifts at grocery stores from Placerville to Orangevale, handing out flyers that explained how shoppers could help the hungry in our community by helping fill food bank shelves.

The volunteers combined efforts at each of the stores, along with a generous community, resulted in a total of 4,000 pounds of food and $10,800 in cash and gift card donations being collected. Beneficiaries of this event are the Food Bank of El Dorado County, Twin Lakes Food Bank in Folsom, and Hands 4 Hope – Youth Making A Difference.
