The Assistance League of Flintridge’s auxiliary, Cañada Auxiliary of Professionals (CAP), have provided meals to frontline workers at USC-Verdugo Hills Hospital on four occasions this year.
After having provided meals to USC-VHH in the spring of 2020, CAP member Astrid Soegaard suggested a second round of meals be provided. CAP membership unanimously supported this proposal.
The project was coordinated through the website Meal Train Plus, which was established to support COVID-19 front-line workers at USC-VHH.
Local businesses Penelope’s, Gelsinger’s and Stella’s were enthusiastic participants in the philanthropic project, providing lunches and dinners.
CAP members participate in five philanthropic programs: Scholarships, Cappy Bears, SPROUTS, and CAP Care PACs, and work with Assistance League of Flintridge in Operation School Bell. CAP philanthropies are supported by sales in the Bargain Box thrift shop, which includes toy sales.
