Since 2004, the Allen Lund Company has humbly supported the efforts of Navidad en el Barrio, an organization that has supported the underserved communities of Los Angeles, since 1972. Started by a former NFL player, Danny Villanueva, his 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 was able to prosper with amazing donors.
“Every year, we look forward to working with Navidad en el Barrio to collect, organize, and distribute groceries for the families to make a healthy Christmas dinner,” said Nora Trueblood, Director of Marketing at ALC.
ALC employees volunteer 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. In 2021, we helped feed over 12,500 of the most in-need families in Southern California. ALC Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Little Rock, Portland, IT, CSC, TMS, Corporate, and MarCom all participated.
Executive VP Kenny Lund, commented, “More than ever, this year was critical for the families in need at Christmas time. I am so proud of and thankful for those who stepped up and donated food, time, transportation, and prayers. I saw the joy the food brought to many. Blessing to all.”
The Allen Lund Company appreciates our Navidad donors immensely and we thank you for your generosity in helping a great cause.
