But more help is needed.

At the Nov. 20 event, former Spurs player Sean Elliott and his wife, Claudia Zapata, joined Security Service Federal Credit Union volunteers to collect 486 turkeys, and the credit union matched the donation with 4,860 pounds of food towards the total goal of collecting a million pounds of food during the Food 4 SA November food drive.

Even with subsequent donations, the Food Bank is behind in its goal. It still needs 200,000 pounds.

The best way to help, according to the organization, is to make an online donation at where you can donate 100 pounds of groceries for $10 or drop off non-perishable food items and monetary donations at any Security Service Federal Credit Union location through the end of November.
