...At the Heart of Celebrating the Fall Season Together
While I usually adore decorating for the fall holidays, this year I haven't put anything up. There's a combination of reasons- the uncertainty of whether or not we will get any of the 200+ usual trick-or-treaters, the recent heat wave, and the shock that somehow Halloween is already next week!
If you find yourself in a similar mood- I have heart-warming news that will get us in the spirit. The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce 'Women in Business'
program is hosting a Halloween themed food drive in our parking lot (1230 Cravens Ave, Torrance) next Thursday, October 29
from 3:30 - 6:00 p.m.
in support our Food For Kids
This is at the same time that we hold our weekly drive-thru with Pediatric Therapy Network to provide weekends meals for families they serve- so this week those children are in for an extra special treat!
We are so grateful for the timing of this event, as our shelves have been looking bare after we delivered more than 50,000 meals in response to COVID this summer!
You are all invited to join the festivities by dressing up in a hat, mask or full-blown costume and driving by to drop off non-perishable food items. You can find a list of what we need here
. You may get a wave and a thank you from disguised local officials, board members, donors and supporters including our own Affinity Group
Hope to safely see you next week-
