Burbank residents showed compassion for fellow neighbors during National Make A Difference Day on Saturday by donating 35 full shopping carts of food to the city's three main social service agencies, organizers said.
Organized by the Burbank Civic Pride Committee, volunteers stood outside six neighborhood grocery stores asking for donations of food for Burbank Family Service Agency, Burbank Salvation Army and the Burbank Temporary Aid Center.
"There are a lot of nice people here in Burbank and you just can't do enough for the city," said Rob Vincent while standing outside the Fresh & Easy on the 1600 block of West Verdugo Avenue.
Vincent, chairman of the Civic Pride Committee, was happy with the day's turnout, especially at his location and Henry's Farmers Market on North San Fernando Boulevard.
"This was Fresh & Easy's first year and Henry's second, and although they are both smaller stores, the response was still very positive," he said.
