Food drive benefits Single Mothers Outreach

Many of the people who walked into the Albertsons grocery store in Saugus Saturday morning were there to buy all the food necessary for a holiday meal.

Some of them turned right around and gave that food away.

Residents of Los Angeles Residential Community Ranch, which provides services for people with developmental disabilities in the Santa Clarita Valley, and the Aktion Club, a service program for adults with disabilities sponsored by Kiwanis, staged the drive outside of the grocery store on Bouquet Canyon Road in Saugus Saturday morning.

Saturday’s food drive collected many traditional holiday food items, including ham and turkey, dinner rolls, stuffing mix, instant potatoes and gravy, to assemble holiday food baskets for families served by Single Mothers Outreach.

Midway through the drive, they had already collected a hefty assortment of boxes and bags stuffed with food for donation.

“The community around here just seems to be very giving,” said Laura Ridnor, vice president of the local Kiwanis club.

Amy Spencer, secretary of the Kiwanis club, said Single Mothers Outreach makes sense as a beneficiary of the food drive because of “the idea of single moms and kids needing food during the holidays.”

Founded in 1995, Single Mothers Outreach is a nonprofit organization that provides assistance and support to single parents.
