Surf shop sponsors Thanksgiving food drive

Starting this week, through Thanksgiving, surf apparel company Toes on the Nose is inviting everyone to donate canned food goods at the Toes on the Nose Laguna Surfshop deposit box for the Laguna Relief and Resource Center.

Donations from the shop will be used to provide a Thanksgiving feast through the Laguna Relief and Resource Center. The center provides assistance for homeless and low-income families including providing food banks, clothing and counseling.

"We believe that we need to come together as a community to help the homeless and Toes on the Nose Surfshop is doing just that," said Donna Valenti, executive director of the Laguna Relief and Resource Center. "We couldn't be more grateful and happy to see our community come together like this."

In the spirit of the holiday, Toes on The Nose has recreated the Mayflower with canned foods donated by employees. Other materials such as paper plates, silverware and cups have been used to create the ship that is featured in the front window of the store.
