Kiwanis and Safeway launch food drive
Submitted By Marsha Badella
On Saturday, November 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., members of the Kiwanis Club of Fremont, along with the club's sponsored youth organizations, will be partnering with Safeway stores in Fremont and Newark collecting turkeys and food donations for the holidays. All food will be donated to support Tri-Cities League of Volunteers' (LOV) 22nd annual Thanksgiving Day Feast, which last year served 5, 295 meals at the Newark Pavilion and to the homebound in Fremont, Newark, Union City, Hayward, Castro Valley, San Leandro, and San Lorenzo.
Participating stores are: Safeway at the Fremont Hub, 39100 Argonaut Way; Safeway at 5877 Jarvis Ave. in Newark; Safeway in South Fremont at 46848 Mission Blvd.; and Safeway in the Irvington District, 3902 Washington Blvd.
Along with the turkeys, Kiwanians will be accepting canned goods and other non-perishable items as well as cash donations. Safeway will also have pre-packaged bags of groceries, priced at $10 and $15, specifically designed to help those in need with food for the holiday. NBC Bay Area Television will be broadcasting live the week of November 15 through Saturday, November 20 to promote the effort to all viewers.
The Kiwanis Club of Fremont urges everyone to help make this holiday a little brighter for those less fortunate. Fore more information, contact Marsha Badella at (510) 489-9305.
