October 10, 2018 (El Cajon) -  For the second consecutive year, Waste Management of San Diego and the Mother Goose Parade Association have launched a non-perishable food drive benefiting the East County Transitional Living Center. The drive will run Oct. 5 through Nov. 16 and will culminate with food being collected at the Mother Goose Parade on Nov. 18.

“Giving back to our local community is at the heart of our local Waste Management operations,” said Kristine Costa, municipal and community affairs representative for Waste Management of San Diego. “We are grateful to be a part of the East County business community and together, we look forward to helping families in need, especially during the holidays.” 

With the help of the community, Waste Management seeks to fill a Bagster® bag with non-perishable food items that will be presented to the East County Transitional Living Center located in El Cajon.  

“The East County community is a big family and we are thankful to count on Waste Management as a chapter sponsor of this year’s Mother Goose Parade and honored to work with them to address a very important need in our community,” said Daryl Priest of the Mother Goose Parade.  

Community members can participate by dropping off non-perishable food items inside clearly marked boxes at any of the following locations during regular business hours or they may bring items to the Mother Goose Parade taking place on Nov. 18 in downtown El Cajon.
