The USS Foundation’s Fifth Annual Thanksgiving Care-A-Van Reaches Record Number of Families
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (November 23, 2016) – The USS Foundation, a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to helping families experiencing financial difficulties, partnered with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department to bring its Thanksgiving Care-A-Van to more than 200 families in underserved populations in Southern California on Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
While the USS Foundation and San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department partnered to organize and conduct the Care-A-Van, the charitable event was also sponsored and supported by the retail community, loss prevention industry and Jim Lee with LP Magazine, in addition to several local organizations including Stater Bros., Inland Paper Company, Engrave N’ Embroider Things of Rancho Cucamonga and the Fox Giving Fund.
Being the fifth year the USS Foundation brought its Thanksgiving Care-A-Van to its surrounding communities, this year’s event was dedicated to honor all the brave men and women working in law enforcement, who have taken up the uniform to protect and serve our communities.
Each family was gifted with an entire holiday meal, complete with a whole turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, apple pie and a roasting pan to prepare the food in.
“The people that make up our surrounding communities are a part of our organization’s DNA” said USS Foundation founder Adel Sayegh. “It is an honor and a privilege to be able to give back by aiding in the opportunity for at least 200 households to enjoy a warm meal and gather with loved ones for the holiday, especially during this time of the year,” he said.
Sayegh expressed his gratitude to the organizations and volunteers, who assisted in making the event the most wide-reaching and impactful Care-A-Van to date.
“We’re extremely grateful to our generous sponsors and selfless volunteers,” he said. “Their contributions helped us reach and touch the lives of more families than we ever have.”
