La Cañada Flintridge Calif. – The Allen Lund Company (ALC) will be participating in Navidad en el Barrio for the 10th consecutive year. Working together with growers, shippers, and carriers Navidad is able to provide food baskets to over 15,000 families-in-need during the holiday season.
This year ALC worked with companies such as Wada Farms, Dayka+Hackett, Rainier Fruit Company, Wonderful Citrus, and Grimmway Farms to provide food donations. “We are thrilled with the great response our customers and shippers have given to Navidad this year,” stated Nora Trueblood, Director of Marketing and Communications. “Adding fresh produce to the dinner baskets is of huge value to the families.”
This year ALC also had the privilege of running a shoe drive in the Corporate office. We were able to collect 130 pairs of brand new shoes ranging in all sizes from toddler to teen. On December 12th the shoes will be handed out at St. Vincent de Paul’s annual shoe and toy drive to hundreds of families that wait in line for hours.
This will make the second year that with the Allen Lund Company’s coordination, Navidad Christmas dinners will also be given to 500 families at St. Vincent de Paul during their annual toy and shoe drive.
