Until November 18 please consider taking some non-perishable food to Charles Hoffman Elementary School on School Road in Running Springs. The food that is gathered will be given to Mountain Helping Hands to help local mountain families who could use the help in the Running Springs, Arrowbear and Green Valley Lake areas.
The school is looking for non-perishable food items such as canned vegetables and canned fruit as well as cereal, rice, noodles and canned soup.
The class at the elementary school that has the most items turned in will receive an ice cream party at the school. (If that’s not motivation for children I don’t know what is…so help by donating some recently-purchased canned foods by the deadline).
We all need a little help from time-to-time and Mountain Helping Hands, a wonderful, helpful, compassionate organization in the local communities, does so much for so many. You, too, can help those who may need help especially because the holidays are upon us. I know the recipients of the food will be eternally grateful for the generosity of mountain residents who donate to this great local cause.
Charles Hoffman Elementary School is located on Hwy. 18 between Running Springs and Arrowbear Lake. It’s hard to miss!
