Lions to sponsor food drive on Nov. 17

By Lions Club


The Rossmoor Lions Club will hold a food collection drive-thru event in front of the Gateway Clubhouse on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to benefit the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. Non-perishable food items and monetary donations will be accepted.

Donating is easy. Residents with food or checks can pull up in front of Gateway. Lions Club volunteers will remove the donated items from the car or trunk; residents will not need to get out of the car.

Ideal food donations include peanut butter, canned soups and vegetables, canned tuna and chicken, whole grain cereals and rice. Monetary donations are even better because the food bank can buy lower-priced food in bulk.

To make a monetary donation before or after the food drive, checks payable to Rossmoor Lions Club Foundation can be placed in the Lions mailbox within the Gateway administrative building or mailed to P.O. Box 2181, Walnut Creek, CA 94595. Please write “Food Bank” in the note section.

Residents should watch for a Food Bank flier and envelope insert within the Rossmoor News on Wednesday, Nov. 9.
