LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA – Continuing its commitment to perform 40 Acts of Kindness by year’s end, the Allen Lund Company has announced that its latest deed was a barbecue for the C5 Georgia Youth Foundation.
"We cooked lunch for them and supplied desserts. During lunch we set up a photobooth for the kids, which was a huge success. Overall, everyone was so appreciative. We were really honored to be a part of this event. We learned a lot and hope we can do it again next year," stated Silvia McCusker, Transportation Broker at ALC’s Flatbed Office.
The barbecue, held at ALC’s Flatbed office in Atlanta, GA, fed around 72 teens with food cooked by ALC employees. The event also featured a giveaway and raffle prizes for attendees, with games planned by the Flatbed office.
According to a press release, the event was held to benefit C5, an organization devoted to helping teens in challenging environments graduate from high school by teaching them to be motivated, character-driven, and focused on the future.
This latest act marks ALC’s 19th act of kindness in the year, with more to follow. ALC previously declared that it would perform 40 acts by the end of 2016 to celebrate its 40th year in business.
