Tis the season for feeling generous and making resolutions for the New Year ahead.
If you are looking for a way to help your Castro Valley neighbors in need, you might want to consider assisting the community's local food pantry located at Faith Lutheran Church 20080 Redwood Road.
You can drop off non-perishable food at the church during its open hours on Monday through Friday and on Sunday mornings. Weekday hours are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m. It is a good idea to call first to be sure someone will be available to receive your donation.
You can also volunteer to help with food packing and food distribution, one to two hours each month. Please contact the church at 510- 582-0818, and leave your name and phone number.
Monetary donations are also accepted year-round to support the non-profit organization and can be sent c/o Faith Lutheran Church for the pantry.
For more information you can visit the church website here or its Facebook page which has photographs from recent food distribution days.
