Demonstrating Core Values, Barger's Team Serves Thanksgiving Meals to Hundreds.
In a heartwarming display of community service, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger and her team dedicated their time and efforts to the annual “Day of Giving” event on Wednesday, significantly brightening the holiday season for many. This event, held the day before Thanksgiving, is a testament to Barger's commitment to serving her constituents, especially the senior members of the community.
At the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center at Bella Vida, a notable location among several others in Barger’s district, the team's efforts were particularly impactful. They served 325 ham dinners to local seniors, providing not just a nutritious meal but also a sense of belonging and care. This gesture was a clear reflection of the values that Supervisor Barger holds dear and actively promotes.
A news release from Barger’s office highlighted this annual tradition as a symbol of her dedication to supporting nonprofit organizations and senior centers across L.A. County. These centers play a crucial role in preparing and distributing Thanksgiving meals, ensuring that no member of the community feels left out during this time of festivity. Barger’s initiative, rooted in volunteerism, has become a beacon of hope and generosity since its inception in 2016.
Supervisor Barger herself was actively involved in the event, participating at the NoHo Home Alliance in North Hollywood. In a show of widespread support, members of her staff also extended their services to the Altadena Senior Center, the Antelope Valley Senior Center, and the La Verne Community Center. This widespread involvement underscores a deep-seated commitment to community service, further cementing Supervisor Barger’s reputation as a leader who not only talks about values but also leads by example in embodying them.
