Laguna Food Pantry extends gratitude to the Assistance League for continued support

As the pandemic continues to impact so many people across the nation, the Assistance League of Laguna Beach stepped up, once again, generously donating $10,000 in support of the Laguna Food Pantry. 

Assistance League Board members Cheryl Spetrino, Jennifer Paige, and Kathy Pawluk recently stopped by for a quick tour of the Pantry’s outdoor distribution system and to present a check, reinforcing the Assistance League of Laguna Beach’s vision of “Transforming Lives“ and “Strengthening Community.”
