Helping Hands Food Drive
Now that we've spread some warmth, it's time to give again, La Vista!

We're kicking off a new effort that we're calling the Helping Hands Food Drive.

We've partnered with the Tri-City Food Pantry to collect boxes of Hamburger Helper, Chicken Helper and Tuna Helper.

We are collecting in November and December and donations can be dropped off at any City facility as well as some community partners as well.

All the info. is on our website at
