Westfield Joins Brotherhood Crusade to Donate Food Vouchers for at Risk Youth in the City of Los Angeles
Brotherhood Crusade is actively raising funds via its COVID-19 Community Rapid Response Fund, which was developed to quickly mobilize funds and provisions for the most at risk and under-served communities that are being adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and lack of provisions during the “Safer at Home” mandate in the City of Los Angeles.
In response to the call, community partner and donor, Westfield will be providing a generous donation for food vouchers. This gift will help Los Angeles community youth, young adults and families during this critical time to assist them with basic living, academic and household needs and assist students while they are away from their schools and the Brotherhood Crusade YouthSource Center.
Marcus Reese, EVP of Public Affairs said, “There is nothing we cannot overcome if we join together and support each other. That’s why we are proud to work with the Brotherhood Crusade as it continues to advocate for equity and equality in the South Los Angeles community and provide for those that, during this pandemic, need its services more than ever.”
Bremond Weaver said, “We are deeply grateful to Westfield for rapidly responding to the need in our community during these unprecedented times. Adhering to the “Safer at Home” mandate translates to unemployment, food shortages and a lack of access to schools and the Brotherhood Crusade’s YouthSource Center that many students heavily rely. We thank Westfield for answering the call and lending a helping hand for the vulnerable people of our community who deserve a chance to make it through this pandemic safely.”
The COVID-19 pandemic is a global emergency that is unprecedented in modern history. The “Safer at Home” mandate issued by the City of Los Angeles was effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. and resulted in school closings and mandatory virtual learning via home schooling. The order will be in place through the end of the school year.
