The LACC and Levy Restaurants Team Up to Bring the Holidays Early to the Downtown Women’s Center
12/21/2017
The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), managed by AEG Facilities, teamed up with the exclusive in-house catering provider, Levy Restaurants, for a day of service at the local Downtown Women’s Center (DWC). On December 11, about 30 LACC and Levy Restaurants employees participated in the Annual Service Day cooking a home-style meal and sorting donations. The mission of the Downtown Women’s Center is to provide permanent supportive housing and a safe and healthy community, fostering dignity, respect, and personal stability, and to advocate ending homelessness for women.

The LACC and Levy team focused on supporting DWC through donations and volunteering. The LACC-Levy Restaurants team donated food and cooked a baked chicken pesto dish with oven-roasted tomatoes, zucchini, and chives accompanied by a side of fruit and an arugula salad. This dish was then served to about 200 women in DWC’s community. Additionally, the LACC team handled DWC’s donation sorting, an important task during the holidays due to the volume of donations received. The donations were sorted, organized, and distributed to where DWC needed them most.

“The LACC and Levy Restaurants are extremely humbled and honored to work with such an impactful non-profit as Downtown Women’s Center where the community’s passion and dedication to end homelessness for women is felt from the moment you enter the Center,” stated Brad Gessner, General Manager of The Los Angeles Convention Center and SVP of AEG Facilities.

“Annually, over 5,000 volunteers dedicate their time, passion, and skills to our mission of ending homelessness for women,” said Melissa Tillman, Chief Development and Communications Officer of DWC. “We are so grateful for partners like The Los Angeles Convention Center and Levy Restaurants for their vital support.”
