Community members are invited to join city staff members in participating in a food and gift drive to benefit Hopelink, a local nonprofit organization that serves homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities.

Hopelink’s mission is to promote self-sufficiency for all community members.

The city will collect donations of nonperishable food and gifts for children and teens until Dec. 13.

Suggested gifts include warm clothing, batteries, preschool toys, children’s craft kits or art supplies, toy cars and children’s books.

Donations can be dropped off in bins just outside the elevators of City Hall, 12835 Newcastle Way, Suite 200.
