Community Service

SIGNATURE PROJECT – FOOD DISTRIBUTION: To help reduce food waste and address food insecurity, we pick up surplus food every day from a few businesses and deliver to organizations that feed people with food insecurity. We appreciate our partnerships with Ralphs La Canada, Ralphs La Crescenta, and Golden Donut in La Canada that contribute unsold food still safe to eat. We proudly support these organizations by delivering food to: Bailey Center, Door of Hope, Friends in Deed, and the Salvation Army Adult Rehab Center.

ASCENCIA: We make hundreds of snack bags that their street outreach team hands out when they approach homeless people to assess their need for assistance. Ascencia is a nonprofit homeless services agency and emergency shelter in Glendale.

CAROLING AT CHRISTMAS: We enjoy spreading holiday cheer by singing our favorite Christmas songs at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital.

CARRISO PARK HEADSTART DAY CARE: We collect children’s books for a preschool in Sylmar.

FIESTA DAYS: We are a major partner as La Canada gathers to celebrate, remember, and respect on Memorial Day weekend. We host a French Toast Breakfast serving hundreds in Memorial Park on Saturday morning. Our past-presidents cheer and wave as they ride in a decorated truck in the Memorial Day parade.

FRIENDS IN DEED: Hygiene kits for the Woman’s Room.

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE: Activity kits for the kids with fun activities to do during down time in between medical treatments.

SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGING: We ring the bell and greet customers at Ralphs La Canada each December in hopes that people are in the giving spirit and give generously to the Salvation Army. We also collect warm clothing for their adult rehab center in Pasadena.

UNION STATION PASADENA: Welcome Home Kits to help people moving in to transitional or permanent housing facilities.

WARMTH KITS FOR THE HOMELESS: When winter season brings low temperatures conditions, we made 100 kits each including a new hat, pair of socks, and pair of gloves. They were handed out to the homeless in Los Angeles along with a hot meal made by another local program.
