Cushman & Wakefield’s ASPIRE ERG Raises $4,000 Towards LA Regional Food Bank to Help Make Holiday Season Brighter in Community

Joshua Deale • 1/28/2021
Cushman & Wakefield’s Asians + Pacific Islanders in Real Estate (ASPIRE) employee resource group (ERG) and employees across the firm’s Southern California offices, from Los Angeles to San Diego, came together for their community to fundraise $4,000 in support and partnership with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The monies were used to help provide meals to families experiencing food insecurity.

The Cushman & Wakefield fundraising effort was led by Kimberly Fadriquela, Human Resources Manager, along with other instrumental team members including Lloyd Legaspi, Senior Manager, Americas Data Excellence, and Monica Min, Corporate Counsel. The trio was also joined by several of their ASPIRE teammates and colleagues across the firm as well as donators in making the ERG’s fundraising effort such a success.

Kimberly said, “Over the holidays, Cushman & Wakefield’s ASPIRE employee resource group made a commitment to raise funds to provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need. Our primary goal was to be able to inspire and make the holiday season a bit brighter for our local families, especially during these unprecedented times and as so many continue to struggle to provide necessary food and resources to their families.”

She continued, “The LA Regional Food Bank is an essential organization and I am very proud and thankful for our team in wanting to help make a difference in our community, while hopefully inspiring others to also want to do the same. It is desperately needed and the statistics on hunger are staggering.”

An estimated 2 million people in Los Angeles County live with food insecurity, which is 1 in 5 people not knowing where their next meal will come from. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the LA Regional Food Bank has seen a significant increase in demand. A contribution of $25 can provide as many as 100 meals.

The Cushman & Wakefield team was able to quickly exceed their original goal amount of $2,500 (10,000 meals) that they set a new goal amount of $3,500 (14,000 meals), which again they surpassed. The group ultimately raised a total of $4,000 (16,000 meals) by the end of the fundraiser.

Lloyd expressed, “We are very grateful at the final total we were able to raise and extend a huge thank you to all those who contributed and participated in this critical cause to fight hunger.”
