Season of Sharing: River Islands’ 365 Days of Giving Food Drive

Caring acts happen year-round here at River Islands. We are all about giving back and feel so fortunate to be able to lend a hand in putting food on the tables of those in need. You can join us in our quest to help others by participating in our 365 Days of Giving program! This fun and easy food drive supports the Second Harvest Food Bank of San Joaquin County.

Why 365 Days of Giving Matters

Our program is called “365 Days of Giving” because we encourage our residents to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank throughout the entire year. With your donations and support, we help make their mission to feed more than 35,000 people in San Joaquin County possible.

The Holiday Season and Year-Round Giving

While the holiday season is traditionally a time for giving, the need for assistance doesn’t end when the decorations come down. Many families in our greater community face food insecurity year-round, and your support during all seasons can make a tremendous difference.

The November and December holiday season is a particularly important time to donate because it’s a time of celebration and gratitude. However, the holiday season can be a source of added stress for those struggling with food insecurity. By contributing to our 365 Days of Giving food drive, you help ensure everyone can experience the warmth and togetherness that the holidays bring.

How to Participate

Participating in the 365 Days of Giving program is simple and accessible for all ages. All you need to do is drop off non-perishable food items at one of our designated locations, which include:

Lathrop-Manteca Fire Station #35, located at the end of Somerston Parkway

The River Islands Welcome Center, located at 1401 River Islands Parkway

Gather your friends, family, and neighbors, and drop by any of the above locations this year to donate to a good cause! Your contributions—no matter how big or small—can impact the lives of the less fortunate in our community.

A Heartfelt Thank You

Finally, we would like to say thank you to all of our amazing residents, who have already donated food to the 365 Days of Giving program and made it a great success. Your generosity makes this initiative possible and serves as a testament to the spirit of compassion and community that thrives at River Islands.

Join us in spreading warmth and nourishment this year. Together, we can ensure that no one goes hungry in our community during the holidays and every day of the year. Thank you for being a part of the 365 Days of Giving at River Islands!
