“Feeding the Hunger in All of Us” Food Drive

City Center is inviting sangha members to bring non-perishable food items to donate as part of this year’s food drive, which will take place from Thanksgiving Eve through Christmas. On Wednesday, November 21, there will be an evening service at 6:15pm which will include placing food offerings on the altar.

All food collected during this period will be donated to a local charity organization. You may offer your non-perishable food donations at the Thanksgiving service or leave them between now and Christmas Eve in the City Center front lobby. Thank you for supporting the food drive.
