Allen Lund Company Signs Up for Tenth Consecutive Navidad en el Barrio and St. Vincent de Paul Shoe Drive
LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - Allen Lund Company has signed on to participate in Navidad en el Barrio for its 10th consecutive year.
This year, the company worked with a number of others to help Navidad provide over 15,000 families with food baskets, including:
- Wada Farms
- Rainier Fruit Company
- Wonderful Citrus
- Grimmway Farms
Navidad works with growers, shippers, and carriers to achieve this kind act during the holiday season.
"We are thrilled with the great response our customers and shippers have given to Navidad this year," Nora Trueblood, Director of Marketing and Communications for Allen Lund Company, said, according to a press release. "Adding fresh produce to the dinner baskets is of huge value to the families."
In addition to the food baskets, Allen Lund also had the privilege of running a shoe drive in its Corporate office. As a result of these efforts, the company was able to collect 130 pairs of brand new shoes of all sizes, from toddlers to teens.
The shoes that were collected will be handed out at St. Vincent de Paul's annual shoe and toy drive on December 12th to hundreds of families, where Allen Lund Company also coordinated Navidad Christmas dinners to be handed out to 500 families for the second year in a row.
Thanks to these efforts, hundreds of those that have limited or no access to necessities from shoes to fresh produce will have them during the holidays.
