Allen Lund Company Offers a Wrap Up of Navidad en el Barrio 2022

Since 2004, the Allen Lund Company has supported the efforts of Navidad en el Barrio, an organization dedicated to helping the underserved communities of Los Angeles. Started by former NFL player, Danny Villanueva, and students from UCLA, their mission was to provide a robust Christmas dinner to families in Southern California. The past couple of years have proven to be quite challenging for most, but with great efforts, Navidad en el Barrio has been able to succeed with amazing donors. 

“Every year, we look forward to working with Navidad en el Barrio to collect, organize, and distribute groceries for families to make a healthy Christmas dinner. We also rely on our network of truck drivers to move the donations,” said Nora Trueblood, Director of Marketing at ALC, “This year we had help from Jose Roberto Gonzalez of JRG Trucking, who donated his time and truck, Nicolas of County Line Transport Corp., and Taffy of Dreamland Trucking. A&E Arias Transport assists with many loads each year.”

ALC employees volunteered to secure dry goods, produce, and perishables as well as, assist with the transportation of the goods to California for distribution via Navidad en el Barrio.

“More than ever, there is a need for good food for families in need all around Southern California. Once again, Navidad en el Barrio stepped up to provide bags of groceries to more than 15,000 families. Allen Lund Company and ALC Logistics played a crucial role in securing and delivering fresh produce and other grocery items to this program. In addition, we worked directly with Catholic Charities and St. Vincent De Paul to be onsite with the families to facilitate a better Christmas. We are blessed to share our blessings,” stated Executive Vice President, Kenny Lund.

The Allen Lund Company appreciates our Navidad donors immensely and we thank you for your generosity in helping a great cause.
