In the current economic environment, many people have lost jobs and find themselves in a financially challenging situation they never imagined they would be in. In addition, many seniors are now caring for their grandchildren, which is straining their already limited budgets. Many of these people in need are turning to Help the Children for assistance with food. Support from the community is critical to continue these services.
Many chiropractors in the newly formed Santa Clarita Valley Chiropractic Association are responding to this need by hosting food drives for Help the Children throughout the month of October. Everyone in the community is invited to participate in this food drive by dropping off non-perishable food donations and personal hygiene items at the chiropractic office listed below.
