Donation Drive at September 17 Community Service Day

Organizations serving the Folsom community are teaming up to help local families in need at a Community Service Day donation drive on September 17. The donation drive will take place at Lakeside Church, located at 745 Oak Avenue Parkway, from 7 a.m. to Noon.

The Twin Lakes Food Bank is collecting clothing and professional attire for community members in need. The Folsom Lake Lions Club will collect yarn to support the Hooks N Needles program at Folsom Prison, where inmates crochet and knit a variety of items such as caps, scarves, small blankets and toys. The finished items are then donated to a number of charitable organizations. The Folsom Host Lions Club will collect used eyeglasses for the Folsom Vision Project, and the Friends of the Folsom Library are collecting gently used books, CDs and DVDs. Learn more at
