Southland donates meals for first responders

During the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers are serving on the frontlines of the virus, putting their own health at risk to protect the health of so many others. 

Many of these first responders are Members at Southland, working at hospitals and medical centers in the communities surrounding our branch locations in Orange and Los Angeles County. 

At Southland, we care about our Members and communities! That’s why we got involved to give back to those who are working tirelessly to ensure our safety.
