When his wife died last spring, Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin set up a charity in her memory. Now, the Jaime and Blanca Jarrin Foundation is taking a step to help during the difficult times caused by the quarantine of the corona virus.
The foundation partners with Los Defensores, a Los Angeles-based legal services provider, to donate up to $ 60,000 to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The Food Bank has already provided 11.9 million meals to needy families during the pandemic. With the $ 60,000, they can cater for hundreds of thousands of meals.
“We’re trying to help some people,” said Jarrin, who has been a spokesperson for Los Defensores for over 30 years. “We will benefit from our relationship with Los Defensores and their desire to help.”
The Jarrin Foundation and Los Defensores donate $ 30,000 directly to the food bank and double another $ 30,000 in donations through the foundation’s website. For more information, visit www.jarrinfoundation.org/donate.
“With the coronavirus endangering so many families without work, no one should go hungry, and we want to do our part to support the vital work of the Los Angeles Food Bank,” said Jorge Jarrin, Jaime’s son and broadcaster.
