March And Ash Hosting Canned Food Drive For Local SoCal Non-Profits
This holiday season, March and Ash is partnering with three Southern California-based non-profit organizations to host food drives at their five locations!
With the community’s help, March and Ash hopes to collect over 1,000 pounds of non-perishable goods to deliver to children in poverty and families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In-store and curbside donations will run from December 1st to December 31st, 2021. For those that are donating, March and Ash is offering a discount that can be applied to your in-store or curbside purchase that day! If you donate five cans or packages of food you will receive a 10% discount, and if you donate 10 cans or packages of food you will receive a 15% discount.
March and Ash is proud to partner with the San Diego Food Bank, Community Through Hope, and the Imperial Valley Food Bank to help those who are in need this holiday season. March and Ash’s Mission Valley and Vista locations will be collecting goods for the San Diego Food Bank, who is dedicated to helping people and families in all of San Diego County. Just last year, they assisted in distributing 63 million pounds of food to families around San Diego and serve around 550,000 people a month.
March and Ash’s Chula Vista and City Heights locations will be collecting for Community Through Hope, whose mission is to target food insecurity and to help the unsheltered. They’ve launched Mission Hope, which focuses on assisting those who are unsheltered and providing the support they need to become self-sufficient, and Mission Nutrition, which focuses on providing nutritional foods like fruits, vegetables, and grains to those who are less likely to be able to access them.
Their Imperial Valley location will be collecting for the Imperial Valley Food Bank who focuses on providing for families in the Imperial Valley region. Like Community Through Hope, the Imperial Valley Food Bank aims to provide healthy and nutritious food to those they serve. They’ve been supporting the communities in Imperial Valley for more than 29 years!
All of March and Ash’s locations will accept in-store or curbside drop-off donations through the entire month of December. Canned, non-perishable food items such as meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, soups, infant formula, etc., are encouraged for donations. They will not be accepting glass containers, homemade food, opened food, or expired items at the donation drop-off.
See you there, San Diego!
