Food supplies for families in need typically can run very low in the summer when kids are home from school and other household expenses are higher. In fact, the need for emergency food jumps three-fold this time of year. Besides peanut butter, Vista is in need of these items:
**Boxed prepared meals (macaroni and cheese, Hamburger Helper), cereal and Rice-A-Roni
**Canned meat (tuna, chicken), prepared meals (chili, ravioli), beans and fruit

Various toiletries are also needed:
**Laundry soap
**Toilet paper
**Bar Soap
**Regular or travel size shampoo
**Disposable razors

Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, at Vista del Camino, 7700 E. Roosevelt St. Monetary donations can be made to Concerned Citizens for Community Health (CCCH), and mailed to Vista's address or made online at www.concernedcitizensscottsdale.org.

Donations to CCCH, a qualifying charity under tax code 501(c) 3, are tax deductible. For more information, contact the Vista Del Camino at 480-312-2331 or 480-312-7987.
