2010 Operation Christmas Basket
United Way California Capital Region, Sacramento Central Labor Council and Sacramento-Sierra BTC joined forces and were able to serve 210 families and 600 children at our Union Way-SCLC event and 200 – plus families at the Sacramento-Sierra BTC event.
We received $4,800 for toys from Labor, 12,000 pounds of food from the California Emergency Foodlink and 1,000 pounds of food for our SCLC food locker. We also received an additional 2,000 pounds of flour and sugar from our friends a UFCW 8 Golden State. The total donation from Labor and Foodlink was $1.00 per pound equaling $15,000!
When The Paycheck Stops Program delivered 19 cases of food to the LDS Community Services Liaison during the OCB program.
Special thanks to Steve Heath for taking his personal time to participate and make this a grand success!
