The Salvation Army offices of San Luis Obispo County want to express our sincere thanks to Barbara and Kevin Kennedy, owners of Kennedy Club Fitness Centers, for their generosity, and Debra Albert for her dedication in setting this annual event in motion each year. Each Kennedy Club Fitness Center is collecting food, and monetary donations to benefit The Salvation Army offices. The food is distributed through The Food Bank Coalition and Atascadero Loaves and Fishes. The money collected is used to help those in need with eviction prevention, utility assistance, food, and other short-term emergencies. We would like to thank the sponsors of this event: New Times, KIQO Radio, Charter Media, and of course, the donors at each Kennedy location. Please stop by the closest Kennedy Club Fitness location and help us to help others. Each location has bins for food, a kettle for monetary donations, and new this year are our “paper” kettles in red, silver, and gold. We are blessed to have such caring individuals in our county.
