EUREKA, Calif. - St. Bernard's Academy is partnering with local businesses to collect food for victims of the North Bay fires in Mendocino and Sonoma counties.
According to organizers, the plan is to deliver several rounds of supplies to the Redwood Empire Food Bank and the Salvation Army Santa Rosa Corps. Donations are accepted at these five following locations:
Advanced Security Systems, 1336 4th St, Eureka
Danco Builders, 5251 Ericson Way, Arcata
Humboldt Fence Co, 564 Hwy 36, Fortuna
Pacific Motor Sports, 4001 Broadway, Eureka
Saint Bernard's Academy, 222 Dollison St, Eureka
"First, we're gathering the most urgent necessities, which are non-perishable foods," says Chuck Petrusha, CEO and President of Advanced Security Systems.
According to the food bank, the most needed donations include ready-to-eat, non-perishable foods. Loose packages of food cannot be accepted at this time. Many shelters do not have kitchens, so these foods should be easy to open and eat. Non-perishable, ready-to-eat foods include breakfast bars, protein bars, applesauce, fruit cups, peanut butter, jelly or jam, unopened dry cereal, canned juices, dried fruit, and more.
Call Advanced Security Systems for more information about the donation effort, or to arrange drop-off of supplies, at 707-443-6366.
