The Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council is collecting canned foods for the Cathedral Center of St. Paul’s Food Bank program.

“The state of the economy has had a negative impact on the ability for many of our neighbors to provide basics, such as food, for their families during this holiday season,” GEPENC states in the flyer, “Please help us make this holiday season a little better for our neighbors in need here in Echo Park by dropping off any donated canned or non-perishable food items.”

You can drop off those items at the GEPENC office, located at 1572 Sunset Boulevard (behind the Bank of America). The office will take your donations on the following Saturdays:

November 12, 19  and 26 from 9:00 am -12:00 noon
December 3, 10, and 17 from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon

For more information or to arrange for a pick-up of donated items, please contact Jose Sigala at (213) 308-2826 or by email at jose_sigala@yahoo.com
