The holiday season is a season for giving, and the City of Rosemead is urging residents to give in support of those in need.
Rosemead's annual Canned Food and Toy Drive is underway through December 12, 2013. Decorated bins can be found throughout the community where people can donate canned or dry foods and new toys.
Locations include: Janson, Encinita, Shuey, and Savannah Elementary Schools and Muscatel Middle School.
Donations may also be made at collection points at Rosemead and Garvey Parks, Rosemead City Hall, Rosemead Library, and Garvey Community Center
Donations are provided to People for People which has been serving Rosemead and the San Gabriel Valley for nearly three decades.
“They ensure that every item goes directly to help someone in need this Christmas. Please give generously,” a city announcement said.
