A Thanksgiving food drive organized by Keller Williams realtors Scott Price and Janice Hou collected over 2,200 pounds of food from the Sunset Park neighborhood of Santa Monica for the Westside Food Bank.
For the third straight year, Price, Hou and volunteers dropped off brown bags at residents’ doorsteps during the first week of November for food donations to be picked up at the end of the week.
The community’s charitable spirit flourished this year, as neighbors donated 1,000 more pounds of food than the past two holiday drives, event organizers noted.
Two thousand brown bags donated by Yummy.com were delivered to Sunset Park residents for the event.
The donated food bags, which filled six carloads, were delivered to the Westside Food Bank prior to Thanksgiving.
