BBQ Event at the Stockton Food Bank
It was a lovely day for SERVPRO at the Stockton Emergency Food Bank Donor Appreciation BBQ
We toured their facilities, which is quite organized and very impressive. The tour consisted of showing us how they store the food both perishable and non-perishable. Volunteers run the food distribution line which is so massive.
I invited Debbie Stewart from Eagle Construction to attend the event with me as they were one of many wonderful local companies who volunteered to help out SERVPRO of Stockton in our Annual Show the Love Food Drive, which is held in February each year. The attendees of the Donor Day included different organizations from Doctors to PG&E. It was a nice turnout, and I was able to talk to many of the attendees who have such great hearts.
Did you know you can call 2-1-1 for Emergency Assistance for emergency food service? I did not know this and was happy to hear this. Also, anyone can receive assistance at the Center, all you need to do is provide proof of residency, AMAZING!
