Second Harvest Food Bank Fundraiser

Second Harvest Logo

Central and Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection Districts are working together this year to raise funds virtually for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Cruz County. 

Between the recent fires, COVID-19 and the current economic crisis, the need for food assistance has hit unprecedented levels this year, with approximately 40% of County residents needing assistance between March 2020 and now, and 1 in 4 of those residents being children. The food bank has doubled their normal distribution so far to help meet these needs, but needs so much more help to truly reach everyone who needs that assistance this year.

To donate online, visit our joint fundraising page at https://give.thefoodbank.org/teams/14641-central-aptos-la-selva-fire-districts.  A donation of just $1 can purchase 4 healthy meals for a family in need. Every little bit helps!

For those wanting to drop off canned/non-perishable goods as well, donation barrels are located outside at each of our seven combined stations from now through New Years Day. 

Wishing you all a safe and merry holiday season ahead!
