We're all searching for sunbeams these days, and not just the actual light rays hailing from the sky.
Stories that inspire, lend hope, and bring a smile are offering solace and inspiration. And finding out we can be part of a story that is making lives better? That is the biggest sunbeam of all.
So here's something strong enough to tug at even the hardest of heartstrings: Animal rescue advocate Rocky Kanaka, the owner of The Dog Bakery at the Original Farmers Market (as well as other locations), "... delivering dog food to those in need."
Because our animals? They're giving us so much peace and comfort during this time. And making sure they have what they need is at the forefront of our minds.
Mr. Kanaka has opened the lines to anyone who has recently experienced the loss of a job, and seniors who are not currently leaving the house to shop, or anyone who is "... a hero health care worker on the frontline, or one of many battling the day-to-day in LA’s essential jobs."
