CB2's Can Do Food Drive: You Give, You Get

Got cans? It takes more than 5 to make this, but 5 will get you some savings at CB2. (Julie Wolfson/LAist)
We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

The upcoming holidays are about giving, and for many of us that means both giving gifts to our loved ones and to those in need. One way to help out in both areas comes via Chicago-based retailer CB2, who opened up a branch of their home decor store in a segment of the onetime Virgin Megastore space at 8000 Sunset this April.On Monday, CB2 kicks off their Can Do holiday promotion:

CB2 is offering a 15% discount on any purchase, to customers who bring in 5 non-perishable items. The food items will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank to help to fight hunger.

The event was well received last year in predecessor stores, as the CB2 blog describes:

Customers and associates awed us with their generosity by bringing in literally tons of food stuffs. Some interrupted their shopping to go to the grocery store while others donated food without asking for anything in return.

Can Do at CB2 runs from November 9th to the 25th. LA Foodbank will make use of customers' donated goods to "distribute to needy people through charitable agencies or directly through programs" to help combat hunger.

Can-thusiastic? Don't forget to check out Canstruction 2009, which runs through November 15th. Canned goods are used to form large-scale works of art...and then will be donated to the LA Foodbank. Win, win!
