The City began to collect curbside donations at Central Park (Goldy S. Lewis Community Center), 11200 Base Line Road, from willing members of the community in order to serve our Seniors 65+ in need. The City will collect donations Tuesday through Saturday between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Donations from businesses are welcome by appointment to allow staff an opportunity to prepare for larger deliveries. Please call (909) 774-3804 to schedule an appointment for your business.
Essential items accepted for donations include: canned goods (soup, vegetables, fruit), non-perishables, pre-packaged food, food vouchers from restaurants, grocery store gift cards, travel size toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, new grocery bags/boxes for food, and gloves. Packages of individually wrapped or small serving items that can be broken down are optimal and will serve more people (for example: single serve oatmeal, sleeves of crackers, granola bars, etc.). No other items or expired food will be accepted.
For the safety of the community & staff, please place donation items in the trunk of your car & staff will retrieve the items from you.
For more information email Seniors@CityofRC.us or call (909) 477-2788.
