  1. I have volunteered for both San Dimas CARES program and Shepard’s Pantry. Both serve so many of our neighbors that are in need. Please consider a donation if you can afford it and if you are in need of food, please take advantage of these pantries. Don’t be to proud to feed yourself and your family. Thank you for this article and thank you to these locations who humbly serve our community.
