Holiday Food Drive at Heritage Square

Heritage Square Museum is happy to host our second Food Drive this holiday season from December 8 through December 21. We encourage all who frequent the museum to participate by donating any non-perishable cans and goods. Please keep in mind that the goods must be able to keep till Christmas and even after, so check those dates! This year we will be collecting the items in memory of Sid Simmons since this was one of his favorite charities. We encourage all visitors to please bring two cans or non-perishable items to Heritage Square Museum. We will not be accepting homemade items or any items that do not meet California food inspection policies.

However, for those who are so inclined to make a monetary donation we encourage you to visit, The Museum WILL NOT be collecting proceeds, but we do encourage you to visit the LA FOOD BANK’s website for all monetary donations.

Your gestures of goodwill are recognized and all donors will receive a 10% discount on in store purchases at the Heritage Square Museum.

Thank you in advance for your contributions.
