TEHACHAPI, Calif. (KERO) — The City of Tehachapi is helping the Rotary Club of Tehachapi with their Twelve Days of Christmas food drive for senior citizens.

Tehachapi City Hall is one of several drop-off sites for non-perishable food items through Dec. 14.

More than 100 boxes filled with food were donated last year.

“We are so blessed to have a group like our Rotarians who are reaching out to our senior community. It just makes me feel warm inside to see a sincere need being filled with love and compassion during the holiday season,” said Tehachapi City Councilmember Christina Scrivner, in a press release.

The Rotary Club created a 12-day plan to make it easy for people to donate what they can. They have provided a list of 24 food items, two items each day that they would like to put in each box to a Tehachapi senior.
