Alamedans Pitch In at Thanksgiving

Many thanks to the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and community members who pitched in for the canned food drive benefiting the Alameda County Food Bank.

Near Park Street and Lincoln Avenue, for instance, Nathaniel Basco and his sister Graciela Basco loaded up bags of donated items as the rain came down on Saturday morning, November 20.

At the Alameda Food Bank, more than 600 turkeys have been collected for the holiday. But requests for about 170 turkeys and hams for Christmas still need to be filled.

To see what other items are most in demand during the holidays and other ways to support the Alameda Food Bank, go to the organization’s website.

And have a great Thanksgiving!
