A Holiday Giving message from Senator Mike McGuire

Dear Neighbor,

We have to come together for our kids.

Of the more than 12,000 households served by Food for People in Humboldt County each month, one third of those they serve are children who depend on others in order to have enough food to eat.

It’s going to take a lot of work to bring those numbers down, but here’s one way you can help this holiday season.

We’re coming together in the late afternoon and evening of December 13 in support of Food For People, Humboldt County’s Food Bank. Please join us! Here are the details:

What: All you need to do is swing by the Eureka Safeway – on your way home from work – and drop off some canned or dried food and we’ll take care of the rest. Monetary donations are also accepted and 100 percent will be invested in Food for People.

And if you can’t drive up, you can always click here to donate online!

When: Wednesday, December 13, from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Where: Eureka Safeway, 2555 Harris Street in Eureka. And if you can’t drive up, you can always click here to donate securely online!

Prizes: To celebrate your good deed, we’ll have prizes every hour thanking folks for their generous donations.

Last year, thanks to the amazing generosity of hundreds of neighbors, we collected 3,000 pounds of food. This year, with your help, we want to double down and fill the pantry shelves at Food for People with 6,000 pounds of food!

Please join us as we help Humboldt’s hungriest – and please spread the word and bring at least three of your neighbors!

Warmest regards, Mike McGuire

Together, We are Indivisible!
