Drive-Through Food and Toy Drive Set for Dec. 12
The City of Mission Viejo is hosting a special Drive-Through Food and Toy Drive from 9-11 am on Saturday, December 12 to benefit members of our community and adopted Marine battalion.
The food drive will benefit South County Outreach, which works to prevent homelessness and hunger in the region. Because of COVID-19, the need for food pantry services has increased by 90 percent, and food inventory has decreased by 30 percent. Most-needed food items include oatmeal, pasta, hearty soups, cereal, dried beans, canned chicken, macaroni & cheese, canned beef stew; cereal, protein bars and dinner helpers.
New, unwrapped toys for all ages are also sought to make the holidays brighter for the City’s adopted Marines and their families.
With COVID-19 protocols in place, the Drive-Through event will allow folks to drive up, pop their trunks and City staff members will collect the items.
The Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center is at 24932 Veterans Way. For more information, contact RCS@cityofmissionviejo.org or 949-470-3043.
