Give Them a Reason to Give Thanks

According to the Valley Interfaith Council, the number of needy people in the San Fernando Valley is 129,000+ and growing. Through the council's 19 area food pantries, you can help the working poor have a happy Thanksgiving this year. While council pantries are closed on Thanksgiving Day, they will be open in the days prior and welcome donations of food, money and grocery store gift cards. Volunteer drivers to pick up and deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors and the disabled throughout the month of November are particularly needed.
