CARPETERIA TEAMS UP WITH JACOBS & CUSHMAN SAN DIEGO FOOD BANK
Carpeteria is doing a very special campaign for the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, which provides food to 370,000 people across San Diego County every single month. Their latest audit shows that 93% of every dollar goes directly to programs, which means they are able to provide 5 meals with every dollar donated!
They’ve set up a Virtual Food Drive, so you can contribute to this important cause right here, right now – it’s quick and easy to make an immediate difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors:  https://www.fooddriveonline.org/sandiegofoodbank/CapeteriaCarpetOne2018  Just put your cursor on the item you want to purchase, drag it across the scanner and it’ll drop into the reusable grocery bag. You’ll see your purchases on the receipt. When you’re satisfied with your selections, just hit checkout! All donations are fully tax deductible, and you’ll receive a personal receipt from the Food Bank.
Nearly ½ million people in San Diego County are food insecure – that means they don’t always know where their next meal will come from. That’s a scary place to be, and 1 in 6 San Diegans (1 in 5 kids) struggles with it. Surprisingly, less than 5% of those people are homeless. The majority of the people the Food Bank serves are working families with children, seniors living on a very tight budget, even military families (33,500 active military, vets and their families every month). This is right here in our community.
With the help of more than 400 non-profit partners (food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, etc.), the Food Bank distributed 26 million pounds of nutritious food last year – more than 8 million of that was fresh fruits and vegetables!
Please contribute to our Virtual Food Drive – your support will provide the most basic of needs to our hungry neighbors, and your donation is tax deductible.  You can forward this to your friends and family, too – everyone can make a big difference with this campaign!

  1. I would like to notify you of an event to post:

    Get a feel for the wonderful world of horses and the common ground of horsemanship on Sunday May 15th 10 am – 3pm at Walnut Grove Park, San Marcos.

    The Twin Oaks Valley Equestrian Association (TOVEA) presents:
    The Common Ground Clinic featuring Horse Sense 101 sessions.
    The Clinic will offer top local professional instruction to riders in Dressage, Cowboy Challenge, and Equitation and Showmanship. Observe or bring your own horse (see registration details on website.)
    Horse Sense 101 Sessions will include demonstrations on grooming, feeding and nutrition, hoof care, wellness and medical care, tack and equipment, boarding, and therapeutic riding. These sessions are free to the public.

    Come see horses in action, get the wonderful feeling of being around them, and witness how horses give back to the community. This is a family friendly event – all ages are welcomed. Food will be available onsite. Enjoy the day outdoors in the good company of horse people and horse fans.
