Youths collecting donations for food pantries

The sixth annual Tri-Valley Youth Food Drive will take place beginning at 9 a.m., Saturday, April 26, rain or shine. About 800 youth volunteers will be collecting non-perishable items from single-family residences in the Tri-Valley area.

Homeowners should place donations where they can be seen from the street or bring them to collection sites at Greenbrook Elementary School in Danville or the San Ramon United Methodist Church in Alamo. People are asked to use their own recycled bags this year to reduce waste.

The donations will go to the following food pantries: Tri-Valley Haven, Vincent De Paul, Church of Christ, Marylin Avenue School, Interfaith Sharing, Valley Bible Church, Open Heart Kitchen and Showers of Blessings Ministries.

This year's food drive is run by the Youth Service Council, a nonprofit group of high school students. For more information visit For questions about the food drive leave a message at 998-513 or e-mail
