Hildebrand was a driver with a private company for thirteen years. After their last car broke down, he switched to landscaping work closer to home. Elena has volunteered for ten years while raising her family. As Natasha reached school age, she re-entered the workforce part-time and is now looking for full-time employment. Despite a degree in Library Science and fluency in three languages, she was finding transportation a major barrier. To get the kids to school and get to work on time, her weekdays begin at 5:45 a.m. and walked an average of 8 miles a day.All the children are involved in extracurricular activities â€” ballet at the community center, Boy Scouts, cross-country running. The parents either walk them there or take public transportation, which can be embarrassing for the kids. â€œHaving a car here is a basic need, like food, shelter, and water,â€ says Elena. â€œIt is not a luxury.â€ Although their current combined income is barely above the National Poverty Level, the family only relies on food from Foothill Unity Center and CalFresh funds to free some money for expenses. Now, theyâ€™re looking to find jobs that will allow them to prepare for their future and their childrenâ€™s. Their Jeep Grand Cherokee gift is a dream come true for the whole family.The Silver 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, fully refurbished by Seidnerâ€™s was equipped with new tires, accompanied by a one-year State Farm insurance policy. Presented as part of national Recycled Rides program to low-income family selected with help of Foothill Unity Center.Recycled Rides is a nationwide community service project whereby members of the National Auto Body Council (NABC), including Seidnerâ€™s, donate vehicles to local families and service organizations in need. This â€œgreenâ€ program, focused on vehicle and parts recycling, recruits insurers, paint suppliers, parts vendors and others to contribute to the project. Candidates, solicited from the local community, must meet five criteria: 1) valid driverâ€™s license; 2) ability to maintain vehicle shown by proof of income; 3) safe driving record, insurable; 4) financially challenged; and 5) doesnâ€™t own good working vehicle.Founded in 1980, Foothill Unity Center is the primary provider of food, case management/crisis help, and access Foothill to health care resources across eleven San Gabriel Valley cities. As the federally designated Community Action Unity Agency for the Foothill Area, the Center operates two locations, in Monrovia and Pasadena, serving clients in Center: Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, Bradbury, Duarte, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale. 77% of its clients are at or below the National Poverty Level.

Wolterk/iStock(OXON HILL, Md.) — A Maryland man wanted in a fatal stabbing over a Popeyes chicken sandwich has been arrested, police said.Ricoh McClain, 30, of District Heights, Md., was located and taken into custody Wednesday night for murder and other charges, according to the Prince George’s County Police Department. No further details were immediately released.Police believe McClain is responsible for a stabbing that occurred on the evening of Nov. 4 at a Popeyes restaurant in Oxon Hill, Md., about 12 miles south of Washington, D.C.McClain allegedly got into a brief argument with another customer who had cut the line at the fast food spot while waiting to order the chicken sandwich, a popular menu item that returned to Popeyes nationwide this month. Agreeing to take the fight outside, the two men both got out of line and walked out the front door to the parking lot. McClain allegedly stabbed the other man immediately and then fled the scene, according to police.The victim — identified as 29-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis of Oxon Hill, Maryland — suffered a single stab wound and was rushed to a local hospital, where he died soon after. There is no indication the pair knew each other prior to the confrontation, according to police.“Our homicide detectives are hard at work on this one, but we have been able to determine preliminary that this is related to the release of the sandwich here at this restaurant,” Prince George’s County police spokesperson Jennifer Donelan told reporters at a press conference that night.“For you to get that angry over anything,” she added, “and to develop into this type of violence, again, is a very sad and tragic day.”Investigators identified McClain after releasing surveillance images of him while he was still at large. A Prince George’s County police officer who saw the photos recognized McClain from previous run-ins. Investigators also received multiple tips from the community, police said.Police do not believe McClain acted in self defense and have charged him with first-degree and second-degree murder, first-degree and second-degree assault, as well as reckless endangerment.Following the man’s death, a Popeyes spokesperson told ABC News that the company was “very sad to hear about the tragedy.”“We do not yet know whether this was the result of a dispute over one of our products or something unrelated, but there is no reason for someone to lose their life on a Monday night in a parking lot,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends and we are fully cooperating with local authorities.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

As a fitting tribute and recognition to their various accomplishments, an arrival ceremony headed by no less than the Navy Chief, Vice Admiral Jesus C Millan was rendered to welcome the troops.The troops were deployed in Sulu on 2004 under the command of then Lt. Col. Romeo T Tanalgo who is now a Major General and the present Commandant of the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC).The deployment was intended to augment the AFP units in Sulu to neutralize the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), Misuari Breakaway Group and other threat groups operating in Sulu area.After 7 years of deployment in Sulu, MBLT5 moved to Tawi-Tawi province. The troops are presently under the Command of Lt. Col.

IT’S a familiar scenario at the outset of what promises to be another compelling season of college football as the chasing pack look to wrestle the Premier League title from a Worcester side out to retain their crown for the third time in succession. With flame-haired goal machine Mike Hobbiss having graduated, this could be the year where the likes of New College begin a new Oxford football dynasty of their own. For New’s captain Tom Howell, thoughts of what might have been last season still linger. “Many of our boys still feel robbed of the league last year after a shocking linesman decision cost us three points against Worcester” he said. “We will be fighting for top spot again this year but still expect Worcester to be the team to beat.”The other Premiership side to watch will be St. Anne’s, whose remarkable 2006-07 season ended with promotion from Division One as champions and a Cuppers final appearance after an odds-defying run. Having proved their strength in defeating Premiership opposition last season, captain Ryan Fox is confident that his side can cope with the step up in class this year.“It’ll be real test to deal with the quality of the Premier Division” he said, “but with last year’s cup run behind us, there’s no reason why we can’t at least hold our own. We’ve also retained almost all of last year’s side, so with a few decent freshers we should have enough strength in depth to last the season.“A great deal depends on our giant striker Ed Border, who was the driving force behind last season’s success. As well as being a fantastic target man, he’s also one of the most skilful players in college football, so it will be an important season for him.”The First Division is shaping up to be Oxford’s most competitive this year, with almost every side looking to make a decent stab at promotion. Relegated St. Catherine’s, St. Hugh’s and Keble will want to make a speedy return to top flight football, whilst the likes of Somerville, Magdalen and newly-promoted Exeter will be keen to deny their more esteemed rivals promotion to the elite league.Exeter can draw on a fine Cuppers run last year where they defeated Premiership sides Catz and Teddy Hall, before succumbing to eventual winners Brasenose. “We managed to beat Hall 8-0 in the cup” said captain Daivd Lee, “so we shouldn’t be written off in Division One this season. We’ll take things one game at a time, but with Jon George, who bagged 23 goals for us last season, we’ll be more than a match for anyone in this league.”For Keble, however, anything less than promotion is not an option after being relegated last year despite only finishing two points of third spot. “The end of last season was very frustrating” says captain Sebastian Singh. “We’re definitely not going to underestimate this division, but we should have enough quality and strength in depth to go straight back up.”
