Christmas in July Food Drive

Drum roll please! The final tally for the Christmas in July Food Drive - 26,151 pounds! Fantastic!

Thank you so much to the hundreds of generous donors who came out on a hot July day to be the Hands & Heart of Jesus and give to the food drive. You are truly making a difference in your community.

This annual event is to let you know about the struggles families have, especially during the summer months. We are asking listeners to donate canned and packaged food and personal care items. These items will go directly to local food banks.

If you missed the 6 hour food drive, no worries! You can (and we encourage you to) contribute to local food banks at any time. Your donations are welcomed!

Here are just a few of the items that the food banks can use. Remember, family size portions are best. Large bags of beans and rice or flour aren't as good as small family size bags.

Canned tuna
Canned soups
boxed cereal
rice (2-5 lb size)
pinto beans (2 -5 lb size)
canned vegetables
Canned fruits
Peanut butter
powdered milk or baby formula
personal Hygiene items like tooth brushes and paste
bar soap
laundry soap
