Help needed today to collect food

Burbank Coordinating Council has been helping low-income families in Burbank for decades and this year we need to help more families than ever. We are in desperate need of people to stand at stores today to ask patrons for donations of food from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Thursday, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Little White Chapel, we will consolidate the food into family units and then on Friday at Washington Elementary we will match those foods with donations of gifts. We will be in the school auditorium from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Then our biggest push is the citywide delivery day from Washington Elementary School from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 15 to get all the donations to the families. We need drivers to help any time, all day long.

We need the help of the whole community to make this happen. Contact us through ccholidaybaskets@aol.com e-mail, or via burbankcoordinatingcouncil.org, or by phone to (818) 238-7647.
