The 20 members of the Crescenta Valley Chapter of BNI held its annual Food and Toy Drive, filling almost two carloads of toys and
non-perishable food. In addition, the members donated $100 in cash to help purchase grocery store gift certificates that are given by the sheriff’s deputies and volunteers for the purchase of fresh food. The CV-BNI chapter has been doing this for at least 10 years. Even the long-time members – those who have been there 15 years and longer – cannot remember exactly when the tradition started.

Once again long-time member Jacque Foreman of Foreman Graphics was the lead person of this event.

Anyone interested in learning more about BNI or the CV chapter can call Foreman at (626) 794-9620.
