Los Angeles, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–November 26, 2002–Fernando Vargas and his Ferocious Foundation for Kids worked hard this past weekend to make Thanksgiving a littler brighter for some 3,000 Los Angeles, Anaheim and Oxnard families. Vargas and his “Ferocious Squad” rolled up their sleeves and passed out turkeys to area families in conjunction with the Challengers Boys and Girls Club, Para Los Niños, Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club, and Colonia Youth Center in Oxnard.

Realizing that to put a Thanksgiving dinner on the table this year can be costly for many families, Vargas and his Ferocious Foundation for Kids decided to lend a hand. “In the spirit of giving thanks and just giving, this is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to my community for their continued support,” said Fernando Vargas, professional boxer and founder of the Ferocious Foundation for Kids.

“We are grateful for this opportunity provided by Fernando Vargas and the

Ferocious Foundation for Kids, for helping to create a meaningful holiday for the families we serve in the Northeast Los Angeles area,” said June Aiello, executive director from the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club.

“This is the first time in 35 years that we’ve had anyone come into our community of South Central Los Angeles to participate in such a generous endeavor,” said Lou Dantzler, founder of the Challengers Boys and Girls Club.

In addition to this past weekend’s events, 400 turkeys were also donated to La Casa Garcia to

help with preparation to feed 25,000 people Thanksgiving Day in Anaheim. For more
