The Young Men’s Institute of All Souls Parish, South San Francisco, in association with clubs including Kiwanis and the Lions is a sponsor of the annual Louis P. Guaraldi Food Basket Program benefiting local families during the holidays. Last year, more than 3,000 pounds of food provided for more than 350 local families.
Volunteers will prepare and deliver what is anticipated as some 300 parcels Dec. 12 from 8 a.m., at South San Francisco Terrabay Fire Station 65, 1151 South San Francisco Drive, South San Francisco. Along with the food baskets, volunteers will also be delivering toys donated by the community and the U.S. Marine Corps.
Donations of nonperishable food and cash donations are sought for the effort.
South San Francisco Scavenger Co., 500 East Jamie Court off East Grand Avenue and Haskins Way, and Garden Chapel, 885 El Camino Real, both in South San Francisco, are drop-off points through Dec. 11, weekdays during business hours.
