The SEIU 721 Inland Area Regional Council donated clothing to the Youth Opportunity Center’s Adopt a Family program this year. Members Frank Corral, Riverside City Chapter President, and Sammie Luna-Farias, Riverside City Utility Customer Service Representative II, delivered the gifts to the Youth Center on Friday, Dec. 13.
“Our members live and work here. It really is a blessing to be able to give back to our community. The families are appreciative of our efforts and it’s great to see the smiles on their faces.” Frank Corral, City of Riverside Graffiti Education Coordinator
Every year, the Youth Opportunity Center (YOC) adopts two families from a local homeless shelter. SEIU 721 members’ generous donation helped purchase clothing for those families.
