With the help of our humble donors and volunteers, we served over 1,000 turkeys, 1,000 tacos, and over $200,000 in Diamond Supply Co. attire for all. Those in need gathered in line starting as early as 6AM, and by the time the event was to begin at 10AM, the line got so long that it nearly wrapped around 2 city blocks. Though held in Long Beach, the event quickly became a diversified group of people who had traveled from several different cities. As meals and clothing were distributed, our founders HJ Chong and Tito Rodriguez greeted and spoke with those waiting patiently in line. Filled with gratitude, they explained that receiving help and having a turkey would simply make the holiday for them and their family.
We’d like to give a special thanks to the owner and crew members of Bomb Azz Tacos. Their hard work and kindness were significant additions to the event. While handing out delicious food to everyone, they spread good vibes to others. We are incredibly grateful to our sponsors: Pacquiao Foundation and Diamond Supply Co. We'd also like to give a very special thanks to Nicky Diamond who attended. We express our gratitude to all those who offered their time and contributions. With your help our events continue to grow bigger than the last. Through the generosity of regular people who believe in us, Diamond and Turkeys was a huge success in bringing ‘the feeling of being thankful to families through a meal!’
