The Huntington Beach Police Officers Association (HBPOA) is grateful and thankful to all in the community and County for their outpouring of support. They in turn continue to step up immediately to do their part to help feed the hungry and help local businesses. Their job as leaders and first-responders do not end when not on duty.
“Our first event about a week ago at Buon Gusto was a great success. We are looking forward to our second event tomorrow Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at Old World in Huntington Beach,” said Yasha Nikitin, President of the Huntington Beach Police Officers Association. “Hard working families, children, seniors, the infirmed and more are simply out of work and/or not able to easily access, prepare or afford food. People are hungry each and every day now and can use ongoing and immediate help — we hear and see it on the front-line as first responders in our community,” said Nikitin.
Starting tomorrow, May 12th from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m., we are feeding the community for those in need at Old World Village, 7561 Center Ave, Huntington Beach, CA 92647. A pick-up/drive-through system with proper social distancing and protection will be in place ready”
The HBPOA foundation is partnering with J&K Beef Jerky to donate to Old World Village to prepare hundreds of meals. The Ocean View School District is providing volunteers and helping their students and families in need. The HBPOA is asking all to spread the word for tomorrow. If anyone wants to donate for this or future food deliveries the charitable link is: https://www.hbpoa.org/donate/
The public is asked to please like, share and volunteer on the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/42HBPOA42/ and our Instagram @hbpoa.
Any remaining food packages left after 6 p.m. tomorrow will be given to senior centers, food banks, hospitals, children and any/all deserving groups. After this Second event tomorrow, we will do it again and keep it up. We will not rest until we exhaust all the time, resources and help we can provide until our community returns back to normal.
