Since 2004, the Allen Lund Company has humbly supported the efforts of Navidad en el Barrio, an organization that has supported underserved communities in Los Angeles, since 1972. Founded by former NFL player Danny Villanueva, its mission was to provide a hearty Christmas dinner for families in Southern California. The past two years have been pretty tough for most, but with great effort Navidad en el Barrio has been able to thrive with incredible donors.
“Each 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,” said Nora Trueblood, Marketing Director at ALC.
ALC employees volunteer to secure dry goods, produce and perishables as well as help transport goods to California for distribution via Navidad en el Barrio. In 2021, we helped feed more than 12,500 of Southern California’s most needy families. ALC Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Little Rock, Portland, IT, CSC, TMS, Corporate and MarCom all participated.
Executive Vice President Kenny Lund commented: “More than ever, this year has been critical for families in need over Christmas. I am so proud and grateful to those who stepped up and donated food, time, transportation and prayers. I have seen the joy that food has brought to many. Blessing to all.
The Allen Lund Society greatly appreciates our Navidad donors and we thank you for your generosity in helping a great cause.
