BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – A number of local groups are reaching out to help low-income and homebound seniors, with food and other necessities.
The Board of Realtors is partnering with Christian Real Estate Fellowship, Christmas for Seniors and City Serve, for the drive.
They are in need of cleaning supplies, dish & bath soap, detergent, sanitizer/disinfectant, paper towels, and napkins.
For food donations, they are asking for bread, tortillas, rice, beans, tuna & chicken (canned or packages) pasta, soups (canned or dried), canned veggies, crackers, powered & canned milk, box drinks, instant oatmeal, and cereal.
If people have large bags of rice, beans or cereal at home they can spare, they suggest filling it in a sandwich size ziplock bag.
They’re also collecting toiletries and other necessities that many seniors are going without, because they can’t afford it and they’re at high-risk for coronavirus.
If you would like to donate items for seniors, you can stop by 1431 L Street, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.
If you are a senior or veteran and are in need of products, call 661-703-8893 or 661-809-5260.
