Food bank gets into the holiday spirit of giving
PLACERVILLE — The Food Bank of El Dorado County proudly present its Holiday Outreach event for 2010.
For more than a decade your local Food Bank has teamed with the community and provided the supplies for a complete holiday meal to our less fortunate neighbors in communities throughout El Dorado County with this incredible event that serves our most at risk children, families and senior citizens.
On Dec. 17 and 18 at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville the community will gather in grand fashion to assist those in need during these very tough times. Hundreds of passionate volunteers will work to produce more than 1,000 Christmas Baskets they will later distribute to local families that might otherwise go without. With the combination of dedicated volunteerism, donations and community sponsorship this annual event is by far the charitable outreach event of the year.
If you are interested in volunteering for this event e-mail the Food Bank of El Dorado County at [email protected] For those interested in donating food or making a monetary donation call the Food Bank at (530) 621-9950 or (916) 939-6774.
