A canned food drive will be held Saturday, April 19 at Atlantic Times Square (ATS) shopping center with free arts, crafts, games, prizes, and live music hosted by Home of Christians Church.
The drive will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at and around Center Stage near the escalators. All the donations received on that day will go to the local food bank, and in turn distributed to the needy residents of Alhambra, Monterey Park, and Rosemead.
This food drive is intended to raise awareness for the needy, and to introduce Home of Christians Church and their services to the communities, according to Caleb Kwok.
Live Music performances will be in English and Mandarin every hour along with Free Arts & Crafts, Games, and Prizes.
“Volunteers from the Church will be on hand to help make this event Fun for the Whole Family with a nice gift to take home. So plan on bringing some non-perishable food items to ATS and spend a good portion of afternoon on April 19,” Kwok said.
However, no donation is necessary to participate in the event. All are welcome!
Atlantic Times Square is located at 500 N. Atlantic Blvd. Monterey Park. For more information, visit www.homeofchristians.org
