LTTS Exclusive - Ali Landry's WE CAN Celebrity Charity Food Drive

Look To The Stars - On Tuesday November 16, 2010, I had the pleasure of joining Ali Landry and Yum! Brands as they co-hosted their first LA Area WE CAN Community-wide Food Drive benefiting the Burbank Temporary Aid Center and the Burbank Boys' and Girls' Club.

Ali and volunteers – including celebrity parents Adrienne Maloof-Nassif (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”), Marissa Jaret Winokur (“The Talk”), Ally Walker (“Sons of Anarchy”), and Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (the “Guncles” from “Home Sweet Hollywood”) – greeted contributors curbside to collect their canned good contributions to benefit the Burbank Temporary Aid Center.

In addition to hosting the WE CAN Food Drive, Ali and her celebrity friends served the children and staff members of the Boys & Girls Clubs a pre-Thanksgiving KFC dinner complete with KFC’s world famous chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn and biscuits. In fact, when I asked the celebrities why they came out to support this cause, many cited the fact that Ali had asked them. Of course, they were engaged by the cause but it really helped to have that personal touch from Ali herself. I had the pleasure of talking with many of the stars involved, and the interviews will feature on over the next few days.

Approximately 100 children/members of the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank were served. The kids were so cute and full of energy that day. It was a family affair as Adrienne Maloof was accompanied by her three sons (ages 7 and 4), Marissa Jaret Winokur with her 2 year old son and Ali Landry with her 3 year old daughter. Marissa Jaret Winokur’s son Zev loved putting the cans into the collection bins, while Adrienne Maloof’s sons and Ali Landry’s daughter helped to serve the food! While I was interviewing Marissa, her adorable Zev was “riding” the police motorcycle in front of us with a huge smile on his face. It really drove home the fact that Marissa is a ten-year cancer survivor and that the work of American Cancer Society (and organizations like it) and their more birthdays campaign is so important.

The Burbank Temporary Aid Center is a small organization serving those in need at a time when the need has never been greater. In fact, the agency has experienced an increase in demand of 300% over previous years. It’s through the dedication and commitment of volunteers such as you that the agency is able to meet this demand. The Boys and Girls Club serves over 2,000 children annually, providing affordable after school care, day care and mentoring programs. The staff and members of the Boys & Girls Club are proud supports of the Burbank Temporary Aid Society, assisting the agency throughout the year with canned food drives and fundraisers.
