This years Fred Jordan Mission was a success for the Mission and proved once again what this Local is capable of. Local 848 has been an active participant since 1988, supplying food stuff to the residents living in the area. These families are some of the poorest and they were very appreciative of the packages of food items we were able to give them.
This couldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the direction of Eric Tate and Maryanne Bancroft. The food items were picked up and delivered in trucks donated by USFoods, La Mirada and Sysco, Walnut. Along with a generous gift of food items they were able to procure. Other companies that helped out with donations were Natures Best, Coastal Pacific, Ralphs and Vons. Albertsons came through with a very generous price on the 1000 chickens that the Local purchased.
Special thanks to: Tom Tullius for coordinating the food pickup and Ralph Black for assisting Tom with the food pickup, John Carrillo for driving the US Foods Truck, Efren Hurtado for his leadership during the event, Gordon Ament for capturing the event in photos, and Derrick Britton Vice President of US Foods La Mirada volunteering at the event.
The biggest thank you goes to all the Local 848 volunteers that showed up at the crack of dawn and stayed to the end. Not only did we set up our area, arranged the food items and bagged them but we also cleaned up before leaving. The bags that Eric bought this year were especially helpful and presented a strong showing of support for the Mission by this Local. The lapel pins also were a first and they were beautiful. Thank you, Eric and Maryanne.
