As our communities start to reopen, let us not forget the many families who have been impacted by this pandemic.


VABASC challenged our members to participate in the Feed our Community Fundraiser, benefiting the OC Food Bank in Garden Grove, California.  We promised to make an initial pledge of $1,000.00, and match all donations up to an additional $2,000.00.  


We are proud to announce that VABASC will be donating $6,540.00 to the OC Food Bank.  


What an incredible show of support from our members!  We are deeply grateful to the following individuals:
