America’s Tire Company in Walnut Creek is partnering with The Salvation Army to host its first-ever “Summertime Fill the Barrel Food Drive,” which runs through July 31.
The employee-driven “Summertime Fill The Barrel Food Drive” encourages America’s Tire Company customers to donate non-perishable food items to help feed hungry families in local communities with the help of The Salvation Army.
Collection bins are set-up at more than 40 participating America’s Tire Company locations in Northern and Central California, including 1350 Pine St., Walnut Creek, CA 94596.
Non-perishable food in greatest need this summer include canned meats, canned soup, canned vegetables or fruit, chili, peanut butter, pasta, beans, rice or cereal.
The Salvation Army works year-round to serve those in need, providing food boxes, hosting food pantries, and serving meals in communities around Northern and Central California.
It relies on the generosity of the local community to help meet the needs of the less fortunate. Last year, The Salvation Army served nearly 6.4 million meals and helped more than 2 million individuals in California alone.
