It was a family affair as associates from GSF’s corporate headquarters in Irvine and City of Industry distribution facility (CID) gathered at the Honda Center in Anaheim on April 7 to support the Southern California Ronald McDonald houses at the Walk for Kids 5K marathon.
“Taking part of RMHC Walk for Kids made me feel as if I was a part of something that matters,” says Alison Pu, GSF-Irvine Junior Accountant. “It felt good seeing everyone all come together to help make a difference. I had fun as well!
The Walk for Kids is an event to raise funds and awareness for the services and programs provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities. The money that GSF associates and their friends and family help to raise benefits the Orange County Ronald McDonald House and helps to fulfill their mission to assist children and families in need in Southern California.
