Thank You Golden State Foods Foundation!

by Victoria Leon

Huntington Drive Elementary School’s grand opening of the Golden State Foods Foundation Computer Lab was on December 1, 2011.  Thanks to the Golden State Foods Foundation for donating $49,108.25 to purchase 32 brand new flat screen Apple computers.   The grant will enable Huntington Drive to continue the successful Accelerated Reader Program in which students read for one hour after school, four days a week.   
Becky Kruger, representing the G.S.F. family, cut the ribbon to open the lab.  Thanks to the G.S.F. divisions who donated their hard earned money for the Golden State Foods Foundation Computer Lab:  City of Industry Manufacturing, City of Industry Distribution, Internet Technology Department, G.S.F. Corporate Office, and the donors & supporters of “The Bowling Bash.”
Golden State Foods supplies food for McDonald’s, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Carl’s Jr., Subway, and more than 20,000 restaurants in 120 countries.  The Golden State Foods Foundation was established to “improve the lives of children and families in the areas where G.S.F. associates live and work through personal involvement and contributions.”   Celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year, the G.S.F. Foundation has given millions of dollars for community projects throughout the United States.  They have distributed backpacks and new shoes to students.   Two hundred children with physical and cognitive disabilities were given riding lessons on therapy horses.   Families who travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children stay at the Ronald McDonald Houses.
