October 2014 pick-up

Dear Blue Bag Friends,

We are thrilled to tell you that your donations totaled well over 10,200 lbs. which makes this our largest pickup ever! Congratulations! The needy of Chico are so grateful to have food for their children and food for their table. You helped to stock the Chico Food Locker, the Salvation Army, the Jesus Center, and Vectors for Veterans.

We want to thank each and every person who made our pickup possible and that number continues to grow as we grow. You all play an essential part in our operation.

We look forward to our Christmas/Holiday pickup on December 13th!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Francine, Wendy, Michael, and Peggy

August 2014 pick-up

Dear Blue Bag Friends,

Once again we are overwhelmed by your generosity and your overstuffed blue bags! We are still trying to get an accurate estimate but we think we collected over 9,000 lbs. which is amazing for Chico in the summertime. We are honored to share our food with the Chico Food Locker, Vectors for Veterans, the Jesus Center, and the Salvation Army. Some of our pantries were in great need of food, we are making a difference!

We are hoping to add some new recruits to the project as our goal is to have 1,000 participants. If you are interested in talking to family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers about us you can send them to www.chicofoodproject.org/contact-us/sign-me-up/ to sign up directly or we can provide you with brochures and bags. Please call Wendy at 530-345-4615 for more information.

If you are ready to begin shopping for October, items on the wish list include; soup, canned fruit, peanut butter, jelly, canned Spaghetti O's and ravioli.

Your Grateful Blue Bag Team,

Wendy, Francine, Michael, Peggy, Your Drivers, The National Charity League Volunteers, And So Many Others That Make The Pickup Possible
