Three agencies partnered to supply meals to area food pantries last month.

TEMECULA – Assistance League of Temecula Valley partnered with United Way of Inland Valleys and Abbot Industries to package and deliver 71,600 meals to food pantries in the Temecula, Murrieta and Lake Elsinore communities.

On June 21 member Diane Koirth delivered the Assistance League truck to the Abbott parking lot where Abbott volunteers were packaging the individual meals and placing them in boxes. The boxes were then loaded onto the Assistance League truck. The truck full of meals was moved at the end of the day by member, Jean La Barbara, to the parking lot of the California Highway Patrol for overnight security.

On the morning of Saturday, June 23, Koirth drove the Assistance League truck to the U.S. Bank parking lot on Jefferson Avenue where she was met by Dorcas Shaktman, Assistance League Community Ambassador, Anthony Richardson, Sr, Development Officer, UWIV and 17 volunteers from Abbott, US Bank, Anheuser Bush and UWIV.

The truck was unloaded and repacked for order delivery to the pantries. H.O.P.E picked up their order on-site and Koirth and Shaktman delivered the two remaining orders to Temecula and Murrieta

Meals were delivered to H.O.P.E Lake Elsinore, 20,520; Community Mission of Hope Temecula, 14,256; Community Food Pantry of Murrieta, 29,808.

Assistance League Thrift Shop, 28720 Via Montezuma, Temecula, is the organization's main fundraiser. Last year, chapter members volunteered over 31,000 hours of community service on behalf of local families in need.
