Food Bank of El Dorado County announces holiday outreach

From page B10 | December 7, 2010 |

The Food Bank of El Dorado County is proud to present its “Holiday Outreach” event for 2010.

For more than a decade the local food bank has teamed with the community and provided the supplies for a complete holiday meal to the less fortunate neighbors in communities throughout El Dorado County.

On Saturday, Dec. 18, at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, 100 Placerville Drive 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 put together more than 1,000 “Christmas Baskets” to distribute to local families that might otherwise go without.

With the combination of dedicated volunteerism, donations and community sponsorship, this annual event is an important charitable outreach.

For those that are in need of supplies for a healthy holiday meal plan to arrive at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Dec. 18, at the designated time period which is determined by the first letter of your last name.

To receive a holiday basket recipients must be from low income households that are struggling to make ends meet and would otherwise go without a holiday meal for their family.

Due to the current economy resources are limited to one holiday basket per household.

This year there is no pre-registration required to be eligible to receive a holiday food basket.
