For the fourth consecutive year, Hayden Dinger, a freshman at St. Francis High School, and his twin brother Carl, a freshman at Crescenta Valley High School, are holding a canned tuna drive they call Love and Fishes. It started when they found out that roughly 1,200 people in their hometown of Glendale go to bed hungry each night and of that number 200 are children. After speaking with the captain at the Salvation Army, Carl and Hayden learned that a 12-ounce can of tuna was enough protein to provide a meal to a family of four. They set out on a mission to collect 2,000 cans of tuna for the Salvation Army Food Pantry during the Christian season of Lent that began on Feb. 18 this year and ends on Easter Sunday.
The community is encouraged to drop off a tuna donation to one of the four drop off locations: CV Insurance, 3156 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta, Andy’s Transfer and Storage, 3464 N. Verdugo Road, Glendale 91208, St. Bede School, 4524 Crown Ave., La Cañada Flintridge and St. Francis High School, 200 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge.
