For more than 25 years, the Kiwanis Club of Temecula Valley has collected food at their regular meetings to donate to Community Mission of Hope Housing Resource and Food Distribution Center (CMOH), a non-profit in Temecula that seeks to help those in need toward the goal of self-sufficiency. Because of the ongoing pandemic, though, the club has not met in person and has been unable to collect food.
To continue their service during these uncertain times, the club voted to donate $1,000 to CMOH to assist them as they provide much needed resources during the pandemic. Through a COVID-19 Community Assistance Grant, the club also received a $500 grant award from the Cal-Nev-Ha Children’s Fund, increasing their donation to $1,500!
Club members presented the check to CMOH during a food drive on July 17th and were met with an enthusiastic response from staff and volunteers! Alison Willits, Operations Manager at CMOH, stated, “Thank you so much for your generous donation to the Community Mission of Hope Housing Resource and Food Distribution Center. With help from donors like you, we are able to help over 450 families in our area each month!”
