Helix Water District’s employee volunteer program, Helix Helps, is hosting a virtual food drive in partnership with the San Diego Food Bank to help feed vulnerable families and seniors impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Making sure that everyone is fed and has access to food is a top priority for communities during the pandemic. Not only are Helix employees working to ensure that district customers have access to safe and reliable water throughout this crisis, they are also looking for more personal ways to help.

Helix Helps volunteers have historically completed in-person service projects like community cleanups and tree planting. By hosting and donating to a virtual food drive, we can assist those in our community while still practicing social distancing and helping everyone stay healthy.

We invite you to join us in this community effort. Donating is easy – simply visit hwd.fyi/food, slide food items across the checkout and pay securely with a credit or debit card. The virtual food drive runs through June 30, 2020.

The Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank distributes food at more than 200 locations countywide, ensuring those in need have access to food during this difficult time. They can provide five meals for every single dollar donated. Many water agencies throughout the county are contributing to the San Diego Food Bank’s efforts.

Thank you for your generous support of the community in this time of need!
