Allen Lund Company Teams Up with Navidad en el Barrio and Catholic Charities
LOS ANGELES, CA - When I think of the pinnacle of holiday spirit, the Allen Lund Company pops up at the forefront of my mind thanks to its 15 years of participation with Navidad en el Barrio. Like years prior, the Allen Lund Company helped secure donations of dry goods and perishables, which were then arranged in bags and baskets that will make for bountiful Christmas dinners for families in the Los Angeles area.
"We were so thrilled to be serving Navidad en el Barrio for the 15th year," said Nora Trueblood, Marketing and Communications Director. "Each year our customers donate produce and dry commodities and, in the end, we delivered 15,000 Christmas dinner bags to families throughout Southern California."
In addition to securing this year’s donations, the Allen Lund Company also helped sort food and wrap gifts for families—all of which was accomplished thanks to this year’s produce donors, including Rainier Fruit, Sage Fruit, First Fruits, Cacique, Inc., Coca-Cola, Arizona Canning, Mission Produce, Mother's Nutritional Center, Randall Farms, Wada Farms, Wonderful Citrus, Kagome USA, Lundberg Farms, and Tanimura & Antle.
"Allen Lund Company also provides volunteers at the Navidad en el Barrio warehouse and this year were on-site at Catholic Charities to load bags of donations and distribute to 300 families,” continued Nora.
For the second year in a row, the Allen Lund Company also teamed up with Catholic Charities of Los Angeles to make the December 13 and 14 event one in which L.A. communities were given all that they needed to celebrate the December holidays.
