Food Bank’s thanks

The Food Bank Coalition wishes to thank Mr. B. Wayne Hughes Jr., who is matching dollar for dollar all donations to the KCOY-TV Hope for the Holidays Food Drive, up to $20,000. Hope for the Holidays kicked off Friday with the annual Turkey Drive held at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo and Albertsons in Paso Robles. It continues through Christmas.

We want to thank KCOY, Sierra Vista, Albertsons, The Tribune, and our other major sponsor, PG&E, for their incredible support, and we encourage readers to go to our website, slofoodbank.org  , to make a donation. Or, you can send a check to P.O. Box 2070, Paso Robles, CA 93447. Your gift will be doubled by Mr. Hughes’ match. A yield of $40,000 will allow us to provide $400,000 worth of food! San Luis Obispo county is incredibly supportive of its Food Bank’s efforts to build a healthier community, and to all of you we say thank you, and wish you a very happy holiday season!
