With the season of giving rapidly approaching, the office of Councilmember Paul Krekorian is swinging into action to help those most in need. His office is now accepting donations for the Thanksgiving Drive to Combat Hunger.

Last year, which was the second year Krekorian led the drive, 1,086 pounds of donations were collected, as well as a $2,000 check from President Michael Klausman. (See the attached video from .)

"Each year, hundreds of thousands of Angelenos go hungry, including far too many in the San Fernando Valley," Councilmember Krekorian said. "The problem is especially severe this year, as so many families are struggling due to the economic collapse and spiking unemployment.  Through this food drive, we can help ease the pain of our less fortunate neighbors throughout the Valley."

From now until Nov. 18, 2011, people can donate non-perishable goods, including unexpired canned goods and/or boxed foods at any one of Councilmember Paul Krekorian's offices. Donations will benefit the Sunland-Tujunga Temporary Aid Center and the North Hollywood Interfaith Pantry.
