At AirTek, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we work. One of our favorite organizations is We Care East L.A., which has been holding a community holiday event annually since 2001.
We Care East L.A. provides toys for children who might not otherwise receive any holiday gifts, as well as boxes of food to help families prepare nourishing meals during the holiday season.
In 2010, We Care East L.A. served over 2500 community members and in 2012 the need grew tremendously. We expect that to be the case again this year, as the economy improves, but ever so slowly.
The We Care East L.A. holiday community event for 2013 will be held on Saturday, December 14th from 10am-3pm at 122 South Evergreen Avenue in Los Angeles. There will be free food, free toys for children and free groceries for families in need, but they can only serve everyone if we work together.
AirTek and Alliance Environmental Group will be sponsoring the We Care East L.A. again this year in support of their goal to serve every family in need. We will be collecting toys in our offices until Friday, December 13th. If you can buy an extra toy or two during your holiday shopping trips in the next few weeks, we know you would make a child smile and a parent grateful. If you would like to join us in sponsoring the event, call Pastor Joe Guzman at (626) 712-3912.
We also invite you to take a moment to be thankful this week. There are so many in our community who are hungry and need support. A dear friend once said, “Enough is the new plenty.” Join us in making sure as many families as possible have enough this holiday season.
And let us know what you are thankful for on our Facebook Page!
