“We had a great first weekend with a lot of support from our community and our club,” said Rotary President Ron Reyes. “We also got a surprise visit from our Governor, Melody St. John, with food donations. Special shout-out to the following; Christopher Cox, Tamra Barcinas, Janice Prior, Mercedes Wilson, Tish Johnson, Molly Johnson, Jersoon Zenteno, Elsa Gillham, Larry Gillham, Pam Rudy, Rob Barnes, Ray Schuldenfrei, Patty Lombard, Wendy Clifford, Ben David, Jo McLaughlin, Margie Christoffersen, Carolyn Layport, Tom LoBonge & John Duerler – Thanks for helping the first weekend a great success.”
The Rotary wants to help with food donations to meet the needs of those affected by the coronavirus, as well as individuals who typically need assistance. The pandemic is disproportionately affecting lower-income communities. School closures, changes in work schedules and social isolation are layering extra burdens on our neighbors throughout Los Angeles. All donations will go directly to our local food pantry to support those in need.
