LA Galaxy Support LA Harbor Community College Spring Food Distribution
On Monday, March 29, the LA Galaxy participated in the Spring Student Food Distribution event where 350 of LA Harbor College’s most vulnerable student populations received a $75 gift card to Northgate Markets, a box of food and various LA Galaxy giveaway items. The event was held in collaboration with the Foundation for the Los Angeles Community Colleges, Northgate Markets, LA Harbor College, and the LA Harbor College Foundation.
“This has been an incredibly challenging time for so many in our community, especially those most vulnerable around us,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. “Providing simple needs like groceries can make such an impact, and we are thrilled to help support the efforts of the Spring Student Food Distribution at LA Harbor College.”
Included in recipients from LA Harbor College’s most vulnerable student populations and programs are Veterans, Dreamers, Umoja, Puente, Asian Pacific American Student Services, (APASS) and Challenging Athletes Mind for Personal Success, (CHAMPS), along with foster care and low-income single heads of households.
“Northgate Gonzalez Market is proud to have partnered with the Los Angeles Harbor College Foundation to provide 350 deserving students with an array of grocery items and grocery gift cards to help make campus life a little easier,” said Oscar Gonzalez, Co-President of Northgate Market. “At Northgate Market, we value higher education and place a high priority on helping students follow their career path in pursuit of the American Dream. If we can help these students during this challenging time, we’ve made a well-placed investment in the future.”
