Elk Grove is a strong, united and generous community. We support and look out for each other.
That is why during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, many are flooding the Elk Grove Food Bank with support. The need for food assistance is high across the country and the Elk Grove Food Bank is trying to step up to meet the demand locally.
From Elk Grove seniors to those who may being feeling the economic pressure from this crisis, the Food Bank is delivering supplies to those in need. However, the Food Bank has declared that its supplies are expected to last only about 15 days. Food donations typically come in from grocery stores, but those donations have slowed due to the high demand those stores are experiencing.
According to ABC 10, the Food Bank helps around 1,400 local seniors, and the Laguna Sunrise Rotary Club has stepped up with a fundraiser to enhance the Food Bank’s ability to deliver food to local seniors. To date, $13,830 has been raised from 187 donors.
I Heart Elk Grove knows that this community will continue to come together to help others. If you can help in any way right now, we encourage you to do so.
This is a time when we must support each other.
If you would like to make a monetary or food donation, you can do so on the Food Bank’s website, or drop it off at 9820 Dino Dr. #140, Elk Grove, CA 95624. Volunteers are also wanted, and you can call 916-685-8453 to get more information.
