Looking for a nice, feel-good post Easter story? We have one here.
Last week several hundred people jammed the DPI Labs parking lot at 1350 Arrow Highway, with young children getting Easter baskets, a photo with the Easter Bunny and, if they so desired, getting their face painted. Meanwhile, their parents were handed food and produce.
It was quite a scene.
The festive occasion was another Sowing Seeds for Life production, with many SSFL volunteers there to help and the Golden Spur restaurant in Glendora sponsoring
the Easter basket giveaway.
Nhancye (pronounced Nancy) D’Angelo and her sister Roberta, St. Lucy’s High students and the teenage daughters of new Golden Spur owners Joe and Daniela D’Angelo, spent two days filling 100 Easter baskets
with stuffed animals, various toys, plastic eggs and the like. Another 100 wereprovided by SSFL volunteer Merilee Goodwin of Glendora.
The giveaway, which took place April 4, was one of SSFL’s regularly scheduled giveaways held the first and third Wednesday of every month from 3 to 5 p.m.
Sowing Seeds for Life, an East San Gabriel Valley food bank founded by CEO Vicki Brown of Glendora, provides food and other products to some 6,000 needy people per
month, mainly through its giveaways at DPI Labs. They are held at DPI Labs because Vicki Brown is also the CEO of that aerospace company. DPI Labs also serves as the headquarters for Sowing Seeds for Life, or SSFL.
Joining the SSFL volunteers in helping out at the giveaway were University of La Verne and St. Lucy’s High students.
It was another example of young people doing good things.
