The Caring Coalition is gearing up for one of our especially caring events. Along with providing weekend meals bags to more than 70 students at Emerson Elementary and SySTEM School every Friday throughout the school year, in mid-November we also provide a generous Thanksgiving to families in need.
Thanksgiving 2016 was a great success, thanks to the generous response from Coronado neighbors, local businesses and friends from all over the Valley. Over 1300 lbs of food were donated for 20 families. This year 35 families will be selected to receive food for the Thanksgiving meal as well as staples to last through the holidays.
Starting on November 1, donations of non-perishable foods can be dropped off that the following locations:
Sunshine Market McDowell Market Urban Cookies The Hive
Perishable items including dairy, fresh fruit and veggies and frozen foods such as (turkeys and chickens) can be dropped off at Sunshine Market starting on Monday, November 13th
