NLYM West Valley Chapter Holds Snack Drive

Mothers and sons from the West Valley Chapter’s National League of Young Men (NLYM) class of 2024 hosted a snack drive for Goodies to Go on Saturday, January 16, in the parking lot of Rodeo Realty in Calabasas. With the help of their friends, clients, family members, neighbors, and peers, the freshmen boys collected over 3,000 individual snack items to deliver to the hardworking healthcare professionals who continue to fight on the frontlines of the pandemic at local hospitals.

Goodies to Go is a program created by Calabasas-based charity Connecting a Caring Community (CCC). When COVID-19 hit, CCC heard from hospital administrators that its staff was so busy they were often unable to stop for meals, relying on snacks to keep them going. CCC co-founder Lisa Kodimer was quick to ensure Goodies to Go served their needs. For more information about NLYM, visit nlymwestvalley.org.
