Donate food for people in need during National Night Out Aug. 1
When heading to National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1, please consider bringing a canned or nonperishable food item to benefit the less fortunate in the area.
The nonprofit South County Outreach will be on hand with food bins during this annual interactive community fair from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 25601 Jeronimo Road. National Night Out celebrates our safe community while fostering positive relationships between law enforcement and the community. Mission Viejo Police Services is partnering with Target once again to host the fair.
Most-needed canned and nonperishable items include peanut butter; jelly; soup; cereal; juice; canned fruit; macaroni & cheese; pasta and pasta sauce; rice; tuna; and canned beans and vegetables. South County Outreach provides food, homeless prevention counseling, housing, clothing, computer training and rental and utility assistance to those in need. The organization struggles to provide emergency nonperishable and fresh food to an average of 50 families each day. You can make a difference by donating food during National Night Out.
Along with feeling good for giving back, you will receive important information about home security, child and animal safety and services offered by the City and County of Orange. DJ “The Mad Platter” will spin great music and host a few friendly competitions.
