The April food drive to benefit the Burbank Temporary Aid Center conducted by all the Burbank Kiwanis clubs at all the supermarkets in the Burbank area was a great success, according to members.
There is no doubt that Burbank residents are very generous people indeed.
As a person came into the grocery store, club members would hand out a list of items that BTAC so desperately needs and sometimes people would return with a basket full of groceries to give away. Almost without fail, someone donated something — toothpaste, shampoo or a can of beans to a box of cereal. The response from the community was overwhelming.
The event involved all of the clubs in the Kiwanis family including Key clubs and Aktion Club. Edward Stapleton at BTAC must have been so surprised when the vans and trucks arrived with all the food that was collected.
