This year for the holidays Sacramento Marketing decided to host a food drive.They partnered with the Westside Food Bank in Santa Monica. The Westside Food Bank is an independent non-profit organization that has been in operation since 1981. They provide food to the social services agencies on the Westside of Los Angeles County.
It is estimated that 2 million people in Los Angeles County alone live with food insecurity. Meaning 1 in 5 people who live here may not know where their next meal is coming from. The sad reality is that since the costs of both housing and transportation in Los Angeles County is soaring, many people who work, even families with two incomes, are not able to make ends meet or put enough good food on the table. This is why organizations like The Westside Foodbank are important.
Sacramento Marketing was able to raise over 250 cans of food during their 2 week long food drive. There was a lot of excitement and almost everyone in the office participated. “It was a great experience, and I am glad we were able to put this together, it is always a good thing when we’re able to come together and help the community”, shared CEO Shodel Waites. Be sure to be on the lookout for more charitable projects from Sacramento Marketing Inc in the upcoming new year.
