About 400 Fresno-area families were helped Saturday with food donations as well as personal-care essentials in an event coordinated by two nonprofit agencies and a downtown church.
The event was held at the Save Mart Center on the Fresno State campus.
Families living below the poverty line were invited to take part. Each family received a 25-pound food box; a 15-pound box of care essentials, such as shampoo, conditioner and lotion; a box of assorted Avon products; and Disney books.
The Rider Relief Fund is associated with Professional Bull Riders, which was staging a performance at the Save Mart Center on Saturday night. Feed the Children is a U.S. charity with the mission to eradicate hunger. One of its five distribution centers in the United States is in California.
