Eureka, Calif.–St. Bernard’s Academy, partnering with local businesses, is gathering food for victims of the North Bay fires in Mendocino and Sonoma counties.

The plan is to deliver several rounds of supplies. “First, we’re gathering the most urgent necessities, which are non-perishable foods,” says Chuck Petrusha, CEO and President of Advanced Security Systems. The food will be delivered to the Redwood Empire Food Bank and the Salvation Army Santa Rosa Corps.

According to the food bank, the most needed donations include ready-to-eat, non-perishable foods, and case lot only. Loose packages of food cannot be accepted at this time. These foods should be easy to open and easy to eat–many shelters do not have kitchens for heating and preparing food. Those donating are urged to not bring glass containers.

Non-perishable, ready-to-eat foods include breakfast bars, protein bars, applesauce, fruit cups, peanut butter, jelly or jam, unopened dry cereal, canned juices, dried fruit, and more.

For more information about the donation effort, or to arrange drop-off of supplies, contact Advanced Security Systems at 707-443-6366.
