The Parkmead community rallied with about 100 bags plus $$ donated for the Food Bank. I received some wonderful notes thanking me for giving them a way to participate, so I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of my Parkmead neighbors and friends who put forth a huge effort to take part in the Walnut Creek Community Food Drive last weekend.
The numbers for the city as whole are equally amazing. Over 6,100 bags were distributed throughout Walnut Creek and you can see most came back filled with food that packed THREE FULL Food Bank trucks. A total of $13,886 was raised and the cash alone translates into nearly 26,000 meals.
I am so happy with the results and so proud of the community I live in!
A job well done for all your generous donations, and for showing up to help our community!
