The Salvation Army Food drive was a great success!

Thank you all for your generous donations!
To help fill the need the La Jolla Garden Club will be collecting food for the Salvation Army at our November meeting. Please donate nutritious, non-perishable food (no glass containers).  
The Salvation Army Citadel Corps on Balboa Ave. in Clairemont has seen a 1,200% increase this year of families, seniors and homeless who have asked for their help. 
Some suggestions are; canned meats, canned vegetables and fruit, canned or dried soups, dried beans, rice pasta,
and packaged breakfast items.  New items needed this year for families are baby food, formula and diapers.  If you cannot make it to the meeting you can drop off food at Natalie’s home, 1877 Malden St. in Pacific Beach. 

Monarch School Donation

Hygiene Kits – with shampoo, body wash and toothpastes, etc were the request of the Monarch School this year.  

Our Club went right to work!   180 hygiene kits were collected from our members and thanks to our contact, Anita Lindberg were distributed to the Monarch School in downtown San Diego. Sarah, our contact at the school,  was amazed at our club’s generosity and thanks all of us on behalf of the students and their families.

Thank you to all of our members!
