The City of Richmond Community Services Department’s Holiday Food Drive — where city centers throughout the community harbor donation bins for canned good and other items — ends on Dec. 18, and residents are encouraged in a final donations blitz to drop off items at either the Richmond Senior Center or Richmond Plunge this coming Saturday, Dec. 16.
The 2nd annual Holiday Food Drive will benefit the Bay Area Rescue Mission (BARM) this holiday.
All donations given during the “Blitz period” will be entered for a chance to win an Amazon Echo Dot or a gift basket.
