California Governor hopeful Ornelas plans to continue to support organizations like the Fred Jordan Mission. “My campaign is not a traditional campaign,” stated Dr. Robert Ornelas. “I am here to help and to give back. We have been here in the past, we are here now and we plan on coming back for the people. It was beautiful to see the entire community come together to give and serve one another. Different organizations and businesses got involved. Footlocker donated shoes, Paul Mitchell gave free haircuts, In and Out donated meals, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Officers and Victory Outreach International Ministries volunteered their time. Backpacks, shoes, clothes and toiletries were also given to over 4,000 people. I have a big vision to reach East Los Angeles, San Diego and San Fransisco. It’s time to give back and we are asking for your help. Let’s come together, unite and give back to the communities in California.”

The Fred Jordan Mission has been open 365 days a year since 1944, feeds 1,000 people a day and provides nutritious meals for hungry families, builds schools and hospitals, and distributes food and clothing to people living on the street.

“The Los Angeles Sheriff’s department has endorsed the mission. We have volunteered our time to help keep event safe. I personally have been a part of this annual event for years and now have the full support of the department. We must be doers of the word of God. This allows people whether Christian or not to take kindness by helping others into action,” stated Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Captain Timothy K. Murakami
