Our two hometown supermarkets, Albertsons and Save Mart, are really generous to our community in supporting good-deed efforts. This is the eleventh year we have experienced this support from them!

My church, Tehachapi Community Church, recently collected from our congregation to provide Thanksgiving dinners for the Salvation Army to distribute to less fortunate families. Donations were accepted during Sunday services and online at the church's website,

When called on, Save Mart and especially Albertsons came through in a big way by donating gift cards. We in Tehachapi are fortunate to have many hometown businesses which have been so helpful over many years. And this is the season to be thankful to the Tehachapi charities, particularly the tremendous efforts of the Salvation Army.

These are but a few of the multitude of reasons why Tehachapi is such a great place to live!
