About the Thanksgiving Day Food Drive 

The Community Center spearheads the largest Food Drive in the Foothill communities.  Canned food is collected during the month of November at locations in La Cañada, La Crescenta and Montrose.  Non-perishable food donations are distributed by the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station to local families in need. In 2016, the food collected served over 160 families.
