Eight branches (five of which are in the Inland Empire) are participating: Corona, Claremont, Covina, Glendora, Irwindale, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario and Upland.

Since 1968, Inland Valley Hope Partners has provided food, shelter and supportive services to children and families in need. It provides close to 70,000 pounds of food every month, so your donations are definitely needed.
