The Glendale Noon Rotary Club, which is dedicated to bridging the gap for underserved and vulnerable populations in our community, recently put out the call for help and quickly gathered more than $800 to purchase nutritious, non-perishable goods for The Campbell Center.
The list of items requested for the food drive emphasized a need for non-perishable yet nutritious items, such as canned soups, proteins, fruits and vegetables, granola bars, peanut butter, jelly/jam and applesauce. The Rotary organizers of the event recommended that each donation contain about a week’s worth of food for one person to make for a convenient drop off at The Campbell Center headquarters for distribution to its 22 residents.
Among those who facilitated the drop-off were Rotary members Elizabeth Manasserian, Joy Garcia, George Saikali and Art Markarian. TCC Executive Leadership David Fields and Nancy Niebrugge, TCC associate Maria and TCC board member Danny Manasserian attended to accept the donation and thank the Glendale Noon Rotary members for their efforts.
“We’re so excited to contribute to The Campbell Center’s cause,” said Elizabeth Mansserian, Noon Rotary member and an organizer of the food drive. “Seeing the look of joy on Maria’s face was so rewarding.”
