Cutting the Ribbon at The Donald Goodman Family Foundation Volunteer Center

Cutting the Ribbon at The Donald Goodman Family Foundation Volunteer Center

On Monday, May 13, 2024, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank commemorated Donald Goodman, his wife Andrea and sons Michael, Danny, Brandon, and Jaxson during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for The Donald Goodman Family Foundation Volunteer Center. This event marked a significant milestone in our ongoing mission to combat hunger throughout Los Angeles County and a big step as construction continues in the new City of Industry distribution center. The Food Bank is immensely grateful to everyone who contributed to the event’s success and the completion of the beautiful new volunteer space.

The generous support of The Donald Goodman Family Foundation is at the heart of this success. Their transformative gift has enabled the Food Bank to establish the Volunteer Center, a hub of compassion and service that will empower our volunteer program to reach new heights. Volunteers are essential to the LA Regional Food Bank, as they help glean, sort, package and distribute food throughout LA County.

The Food Bank extends immense gratitude to The Donald Goodman Family Foundation for their unwavering commitment to our cause and dedication over the years. They have made a tangible difference in the lives of countless people in LA County. The Food Bank is proud to have the Goodman family name connected to both facilities.

The Food Bank is proud to also acknowledge the Goodman family’s company, Don Lee Farms, as a longstanding partner and remarkable food donor to the LA Regional Food Bank. Their continued support has been instrumental in our efforts to alleviate hunger. Don Lee Farms and the Goodman family exemplify the spirit of community and generosity, and we are privileged to have them as part of our mission to nourish our neighbors in need.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was a true testament to the power of collaboration and collective action. From esteemed partners and donors to dedicated volunteers and staff, the event united individuals in their commitment to fighting hunger and building a brighter future for our community. Together, we celebrated the opening of a new facility and the boundless possibilities that lie ahead as we continue our vital work together.

We extend our sincerest thanks to The Donald Goodman Family Foundation, Don Lee Farms, and all who contributed to the success of the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Your partnership fuels our efforts and inspires us to continue our mission with renewed determination and purpose.
