The highlight of the season was again our annual turkey drive, which we held Nov, 25, This year, as in previous years, the Alameda Food Bank set a goal of 1,000 turkeys to give away, This year, I held my breath when we had a total of 150 turkeys a week before the event, But with the help of several key community organizations, including the Alameda Fire Department, the Bank of Marin, and the Italian-American League we were up to 450 by the end of the week, Then, through broad appeals from the local press, we raised the numbers, Local Facebook pages then kicked in, especially ballet slippers art Alameda Peeps and Where Hipsters Come to Breed, Alameda Peeps issued almost daily challenges to their 3,000 person membership, And the turkeys came in, By the time our turkey drive came around, we had over 1,000 turkeys to distribute, This will enable us to give turkeys to all our clients through the December holidays, The turkey giveaway itself was an amazing event with the Alameda Fire Department, Wind River, Clif Bar, Public Library of Science, and many of our own regular food bank volunteers contributing, I also cannot thank enough the many, many local schools (especially Edison) who sponsored turkeys or canned food drives for us..

On Monday, a circle of friends gathered at the film school at the University of Southern California, where Bernbaum graduated in 2008. Some remembered him for his knack of reaching out and engaging with other students. “I was not the most talkative person and he was just a very inclusive, welcoming person,” former classmate Crystal Page told television reporters. “So he was the guy to know to be a bridge to other people.”. Others talked about his will to do what he wanted to do. “He had this beautiful arrogance about him,” said Tony Lund. “Like he could do things just because he loved to do them.”.
