Nearly 1 in 5 Children and Teens in America live in homes that struggle to put food on the table. They need our help!

Hi Amanda here from Alta Vista Insurance Agency. We wanted to find an organization this Thanksgiving Holiday that can contribute to a family in need. So we found a great program, we are supporting Vista Teen Outreach Hunger Hurts. We are here today with Debbie Medrano so we can get more information.

Amanda: “So, tell us a little bit about Vista Teen Outreach, and who it helps?”

Debbie: “Vista Teen Outreach is a non-profit organization that provides food and snacks for kids in school to take home. A lot of them are couch surfing with friends, are homeless, or their family cannot afford to put food on the table. We collect donations throughout the community and fill pantries in 11 schools in the Vista School District.”

Amanda: “So this is something that’s just for Thanksgiving Holidays, people can donate all year around too?”

Debbie: “(Yes) All year around we accept collections and we keep the pantry full during the school year.”

Amanda: “And can you tell us the locations for the drop off?”

Debbie: “The drop off  locations are Rancho Buena Vista High School in the library, King’s Staionae on Melrose (Now located at 1280 E Vista Way, Vista, CA 92084) and the Vista Chamber of Commerce.”

Amanda: “Yeah! We are very excited to donate all these Thanksgiving delicious treats. And if you guys want more information, we are going to go ahead and put this on our website so that you too can contribute!”
