We've got some news to share! Making It Happen is moving to a new location! Starting October 9, Sunland Food Pantry will be serving the community from Heart of the Canyons Sunland church at 9666 Foothill Blvd. At this time the Pantry will continue to be Drive-Thru until further notice. Please share this great news with your friends and neighbors!

Our founder, Pattee Colvin, was honored by Rep. Adam Schiff with the Woman of the Year Award for her tireless work at Making It Happen.

From the article in the Crescenta Valley Weekly:

"Pattee Colvin of Sunland is the founder of Making It Happen, a food and clothing pantry in Sunland whose mission is to help those in need. Colvin was honored because, when the coronavirus pandemic began, there was an increase in demand for food and meals, and the Making It Happen Saturday food pantry attendance grew from about 60 individuals and their families to almost 200 individuals and their families. At the height of the pandemic, the Sunday Hot Meal program increased from 75 people to 200 people. Stepping up to the challenge, the organization began offering a weekday lunch program, which included meal deliveries and, in response to COVID-19 safety protocols, changed the manner in which they serve the needy from a walk-through pantry and seated dinners to a drive-through and delivery."

Join us in celebrating Pattee and all her hard work!!
