Ever wonder what to give someone for their birthday…

How about a donation in their name?

Singh and Ritu decided to help others by purchasing food and donating it to the San Lorenzo Family Help Center as a way to celebrate Singh’s birthday. 

We appreciate their open heart and celebrating through the gift of food donation.

Food Recovery Pick Up During Our Spring Drive

In April, Janelle picked up mac & cheese, peanut butter, and cans of tuna from the San Lorenzo Japanese Christian Church. Thank you to the church and everyone that brought these items as a donation. It fills our hearts and puts smiles our our faces.
