Food DriveShingletown Medical Center (SMC) and the United Bikers Association of Northern California (UBNC) sponsored a food drive on Monday, February 8th at the FoodMaxx in Redding. The event was a huge success! The food drive went from 6am to 6pm and 8 to 10 UBNC members and Shingletown residents volunteered their time and energy to help make this a success.

The event brought it over 1,000 pounds of canned and dried food items that were donated to the Shingletown True North, Inc./Grassroots Emergency Food Closet. A huge “Thank You” to all of the members of the UBNC for their help in organizing the event and also their help with the delivery and unloading of the donated items.

Shingletown’s True North, Inc. has been known as a Family Resource Center for over 15 years. They supply referral information to all types of social/welfare organizations in and around the community. Under the umbrella of True North, Inc. you will find community organizations such as the Grassroots Emergency Food Closet which attempts to meet the food insecurity issues of our area with a “hand up, not just a hand out” program. This resource program also helps by being a referral organization for assistance programs as well as for nutritional and life-style information.
