SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – Food banks in Shasta County are hoping to ease the burden for those impacted by the coronavirus.
Food supplies are running short and the Redding Rancheria donated $14,000 to local food banks Tuesday afternoon. Dignity Health, Connected Living, and the Salvation Army both received $5,000. Tri-County Community network and the Trinity County Food Bank received $2,000 each.
"A lot of vendors haven't been able to make it up our way because of everything that has happened, so people are struggling, this money will definitely help that," said Ashley Nelson. "It will give us different access points to families."
The Redding Rancheria also donated more than $80,000 to 23 different organizations in Shasta and Trinity counties in the spring.
