BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Capital Dental Group and 88.3 Life FM are partnering up for a Thanksgiving food drive benefiting the Community Action Partnership of Kern Food Bank.

The food drive is happening Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Capital Dental Group parking lot at 8701 Camino Media.

Community members are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items of Thanksgiving and everyday varieties. Turkeys will also be accepted.

Participants are asked to avoid donating fresh produce.

“This has been a difficult year for everyone, and we are excited to give back to this wonderful community that we have had the privilege of serving since 1989,” said Capital Dental Group Controller Ashley Vaughan. “Our incredible staff works hard every day and the food drive gives them an opportunity to extend those efforts beyond Capital Dental Group’s walls.”

Donations will be accepted along Liberty Park Drive, just south of the Capital Dental Group building between Haggin Oaks Boulevard and Mill Rock Way.

Volunteers will take donated items out of back seats and trunks, allowing donors to drive up, drop off and drive away without leaving their vehicles.
