Provide holiday meals and hope to those in need!

Thank you to EVERYONE who participated in this year's Turkey Drive.  So many generous people leaned in and offered turkeys, treasure, and time to help those in need during this holiday season.  All donations will help provide holiday meals, peace of mind, and joy to those most vulnerable in our communities. 


From the teams at News Channel 12, Good Samaritan Services, and SLO Food Bank - we simply couldn't serve as many neighbors without your support!   

Special thanks to California Fresh Market-Pismo Beach, California Fresh Market-San Luis Obispo,  Grocery Outlet- Lompoc, Grocery Outlet-Arroyo Grande,  Grocery Outlet-Los Osos, Grocery Outlet- San Luis Obispo, and Vons-Atascadero.
