48th Annual Holiday Food Drive Success

Kinecta Volunteers, Maxine Waters Food Drive
Published on: November 29, 2021
 

Kinecta Federal Credit Union proudly hosted its 48th Annual Holiday Food Drive at Jesse Owens Park in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 21. Kinecta made Thanksgiving a little brighter for over 1,000 deserving families selected by Los Angeles-based community organizations by giving them each a bag of traditional Thanksgiving food items along with a $75 grocery store gift card to help complete their holiday meal.
 
“The holiday season is known as a time of giving and each year Kinecta enthusiastically conducts activities to support the communities where we work and live,” said Latrice McGlothin, Executive Director, Kinecta Community Foundation. “As food insecurity rises amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted to make this holiday season a little easier for deserving families in need. We thank our employees, the community, corporate sponsors, members and individual donors for their support in helping us make our 2021 Holiday Food Drive a success!”
 
During November, Kinecta collected monetary donations raising over $55,000 from corporate sponsors, members, employees and individual donors. At the event, cars lined up to safely receive their goodie bags in a drive thru environment hosted by more than 75 Kinecta volunteers, including employees, family, friends and vendors, joined by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, prominent Watts activist & Parents of Watts founder, Dr. Sweet Alice Harris, and LA Galaxy forward, Cameron Dunbar.
