I am Frank F. I recently started volunteering my time and donating with A Light Of SonShine, I am very please to see an organization that puts everything back into helping families with young children. All the staff and board members have had similar situations in life and have needed help themselves. So we understand what it means to be hungry and alone. Please at this special time of year remember that hunger last beyond the holidays and many people need our help and support.
Thank you Hunger Fighter

My name is Lucas and I have been working on A Light of Sonshine with my family members since the beginning. We are always excited to help people who have come upon hard times. Erica from Fresh & Easy has given us tons of assistance in helping everyone fill their refrigerators and giving them peace of mind and a full stomach. We are working very hard to make A Light of Sonshine the best source of assistance for the hungry and homeless. Thanks to Fresh & Easy, our volunteers, and our donors. It is greatly appreciated by those whom we help; we also appreciate the opportunity to serve. Thank you, Lucas C.

It’s wonderful to see so many people respond to the issues of hunger and homelessness who obviously care not only about themselves but for the lives and welfare of the homeless people in our communities. I applaud you.

I also want to recognize the men and women who work so tirelessly to ensure we keep our program going day after day to serve the community. Our dedicated Executive Director Eli Sheth and his staff, as well as my fellow board members and you, are the supporting pillars of this organization.

No organization could function without its supporting pillars. We could have the most donations and food in the world, but without the men and women to carry out our mission or someone to manage the organization, how effective would we be. This is true of all organizations, if we don’t have the manpower or proper leadership these services would never make it to the people we intended to help.

Before I go any further, I would also like to thank our Donors, Volunteers and the continued support from Fresh and Easy. I especially want to thank Store Director Erica and her wonderful Team. These pillars of our strength are what make the program successful.

These last few years have certainly been trying times. But no matter how difficult life gets; no matter how many roadblocks get thrown our way, we cannot give up on anyone. When people are in trouble, they turn to friends who become their lifeline. I think it’s important to draw our attention to the ongoing humanitarian efforts of fighting hunger and homelessness.

As we embark on a new year, let us all continue to work together to ensure that our organization and others like us are around to continue the fight and serve the people. I give you my promise we will continue the fight against hunger and homelessness.

Thank you for your time. I look forward to serving A Light Of SonShine in the coming years and appreciate your continuous commitment to our organization and movement.

John Chan, Chairman & Co-Executive Director

Working with my family to get this organization started has been a great experience. I remember the first time I went with John to bring food to the homeless in Venice, CA. There were so many people that were out on the streets with no place to go besides the awning of a store closed for the night. The sidewalk beneath the awning was full of old sleeping bags and people sleeping with all their belongings as close to them as possible. It was heartbreaking and sobering. A few years before we started this we were having tough times ourselves. It wasn't until recently that I realized how close we came to living like the people I saw in Venice that night. Once we were able to stabilize our own lives we decided it was time to help someone else and A Light of Sonshine was the result. All the support we have received so far has been a blessing. Every inkling of assistance we get pushes us to help provide a better future for others. Every inkling of assistance we get shows us how much others care. Every inkling of assistance we get gives us the will to continue up our path. I would like to thank everyone for their time and support.
