With the holidays upon us and the economy in turmoil, many Menifee residents find it difficult this time of the year to supply the basics for their families. I encourage Menifee residents who are able, to donate what they can to the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard, a non profit organization.
The Cupboard is operated by volunteers who also collect donations of food from markets, organizations and individuals for redistribution to those in need. The Menifee Valley Community Cupboard accepts tax deductible donations of money which is used to purchase stocks of food items and to operate it's distribution facility.
Donations of commercially packaged, unspoiled foodstuffs are always welcome either at the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard or at any of the "donation barrels" located at various locations throughout the communities served or at special temporary collection sites established by the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard at community events.
Donations of money are equally important in order to keep the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard in operation to augment its donated food supplies.
If you and your family are able to assist the Menifee Valley Cupboard, please visit http://www.mvcupboard.org
