(Victor Valley)– We are thrilled to report that last week, as part of National Volunteer Week, volunteers hosted multiple food drives at local grocery stores and their workplaces to help very low-income children in our community to receive weekend food bags through United Way’s Kids Pack Program.
We are still counting thousands of items that were collected, but we are so grateful to have such a caring and supportive community! Here’s what one volunteer had to say about his experience: The opportunity to volunteer on the food drive to benefit Inland Empire kids was an awesome experience. The willingness to give by so many from every walk of life was truly moving. Several times throughout the day the kind comments and joy expressed by those who donated nearly moved me to tears. I am looking forward to the opportunity to do it again!
Thank you to the many community volunteers and shoppers who helped make a difference in the lives of children in our community. Also, thank you to the following companies for hosting food drives:
- Automated Data Processing (ADP)
- Green Tree Servicing
- Southern California Edison
- WLC Architects, Inc.
Lastly, a big thank you to the following stores for allowing our volunteers to host food drives: Ralphs in Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga, Albertsons in Chino Hills, Upland, and Rancho Cucamonga, and Vons in Upland. Thank you again to all who participated! As a result of your work and contributions, hundreds of local hungry kids will be fed!
