Temple Fire & Rescue needs your help in collecting food for area families in need.

Firefighters will be at the HEB at 3002 S. 31st St. in Temple on Saturday, November 16 to collect non-perishable food as part of the Food for Families drive. Donations can also be dropped off at any Temple Fire & Rescue station.

Firefighters will hand out plastic helmets and activity books to kids as they accept canned goods, baby food, pasta and other non-perishable items to benefit local food banks.
