Jamestown, CA — The number of those seeking food this holiday season is on the rise while the number donations coming in is down according to Anthony Martinez with the ATCAA Food Bank.
?On a good year you are looking at six-to-eight hundred families in need for Christmas and on a bad year a thousand-to-twelve hundred,? adds Martinez. ?We´re at 1,500 holiday baskets needed this year.?
Residents have until Thursday to drop off non-perishable food items in the red buckets located at grocery stores and select businesses around Tuolumne County.
