Aaron Moore, owner of LA Lounge of Inglewood, made a commitment when he opened his member only cigar lounge on Manchester Ave. that he would be committed to providing for the community.
On Nov. 21, his partners and members along with Veterans & Family Affairs organization distributed hundreds of turkeys and gift bags that included blankets and can goods joined Moore.
“This was a joint effort with LA Lounge, Nail & Hammer and Felicia Jones who runs Veterans & Family Affairs to bless some people in the community with a holiday meal for Thanksgiving during these most difficult times,” Moore told Inglewood Today.
Veterans & Family Affairs is a local program based in Inglewood that provides goods and advocacy services for veterans and their families through local government agencies.
“We are honored to have partnered with Aaron whom I’ve know for many years and have a tremendous amount of respect for. This is a opportunity for us to outreach to more families that we can impact during this pandemic and beyond,” Jones said.
Nail & Hammer is a construction and renovation company also owned by Moore, which co-sponsored the affair.
The event was held on Manchester Ave. just east of Crenshaw Blvd. and followed the COVID-19 health and safety regulations implemented by Los Angeles County. People drove up in their cars with their mask on and the two organizations handed the turkey and gift bag wearing gloves and masks.
Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Jr. and Councilman Eloy Morales applauded the efforts of LA Lounge.
