Food Bank of San Benito County operates a fireworks booth in Hollister

It’s that time of year! The fireworks booth is open for business starting Wednesday, June 28 through Tuesday, July 4. Come sign up to win a $99 package, and buy some fireworks to celebrate Independence Day!

The booth is located in the Kmart parking lot at 491 Tres Pinos Road.

All proceeds from the booth directly benefit Community FoodBank.

From last year’s fireworks fundraiser:
“Most of all, there were the thousands of customers who came by the booth, not just to buy fireworks, but to vote with their hard-earned dollars. Many times each day, customers told us that they always make it a point to shop at the Community Food Bank’s stand. After buying their fireworks, customers stuffed donation jars at the booth. One retired teacher made his annual trip to the Food Bank booth, and bought his customary single fountain before paying for it with a $150 donation.” – Mark Paxton, Director of Community Engagement, Community FoodBank

This year, we give our thanks to all of you who plan to support local nonprofit organizations by buying fireworks, and using them safely and responsibly.

Community Food Bank’s mission is to provide food, nutritional education and advocacy for our neighbors in need within San Benito County.
