The EPIA has a long-standing commitment to helping out individual members of the community, especially during the Holiday season. Recently, the EPIA participated in the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway at Dodger Stadium, along with local organizations and members of the community.
Last week, on Thursday, November 18, the Dodgers with all those partners involved, along with sponsors Ralphs and Food 4 Less, 600 pre-selected families were provided complimentary turkey, fixings, and reusable canvas bags. We at the EPIA are proud of all the hard work dedicated in our community during this holiday season.
EPIA Secretary Andrew Garsten writes about his experience in the upcoming issue of EPIAn Ways, writing, “the ability to do the simplest of things for me, and everything that this embodies, leaves me grateful that I can take part in having a profound impact on others.”
Everyone who participated in this generous event included: Ralphs and Food 4 Less, Los Angeles City Council member Ed P. Reyes, Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti, California State Assemblymember Kevin De León, the Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council (GEPENC), and the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park (CCSEP) for the giveaway.
