On Tuesday November 25, at 3:00 p.m., the Los Angeles Lakers and The Salvation Army Inglewood Citadel Corps will team up to distribute frozen turkeys, pies and all of the classic holiday trimmings to 300 deserving families – just in time for Thanksgiving. Lakers’ star guard Jeremy Lin and six Laker Girls will be on hand to help pass out the food to those in need and share warm holiday cheer.
The event will be held at The Salvation Army Inglewood Citadel Corps, 324 E. Queen Street, Inglewood, CA 90301,
This marks the 7th year that The Salvation Army Inglewood Citadel Corps, along with various community partners have hosted the “Miracle on Manchester,” food distribution event. Since the event first began, it has given more than 8,000 in need families the gift of a Thanksgiving meal. The Salvation Army Inglewood Citadel Corps will partner with the Los Angeles Lakers, Food Finder, and the Rotary Club of Inglewood whose lead gift of needed food staples for each food box helped make the event a reality.
During the 2013 holiday season, The Salvation Army in Southern California provided more than 290,000 meals to individuals in need. Delivering food to the hungry is just one of the social services made possible this Christmas season, when money is donated to The Salvation Army’s iconic red kettles stationed at storefronts throughout the city.
