City of Hope (COH) Blood Drive
The spirit of giving and caring remains strong! Our recent blood drive, benefiting City of Hope, drew 50 donors who gave hope to 162 families! 

Ten of our service guests not only maintained the health of their vehicle, but also did the same for themselves. Each donor was given a complimentary brief mini-physical exam, i.e. blood pressure, iron count, pulse, and temperature by COH nurses.

To express our appreciation, every donor went home with a Thank You gift, compliments of Longo Toyota and City of Hope.

    Earth Day Celebration
Longo's Annual Earth Day Celebration kicked off with interactive displays, spin-to-win activities, earth-friendly giveaways, and lots of water-wise and energy saving tips!

Participants took turns at a spin wheel to win green prizes as plant seeds, reusable bags, and more.

On-site FREE paper shredding was a big hit with over 5000 lbs. of paper  products collected for recycling.

A huge thank you to Mountain View High School Football Team for their assistance this year.

Longo looks forward to hosting the 9th Annual Earth Day Celebration on April 20, 2018..

    February - Wear Red Fridays for Healthy Heart Month
In honor of National Healthy Heart month, Team Longo sported red apparel on Fridays to display our support for women and men with heart disease.  

There are three important steps in preventing and treating heart disease:   Know Your Risk (no matter your age), Get Routine Checkups, and Have a Lifestyle that ensures a Heart-Healthy body.

At Longo, health and wellness programs are offered to our team members to help maintain a healthy lifestyle and reduce heart disease.

    Children's Hospital L.A. (CHLA) Beanie Drive
Longo hosted a CHLA Beanie Drive in honor of Yssa Gutierrez, a CHLA patient and son of one of Longo's Team Members. Over 650 colorful beanies were donated and helped raise awareness of childhood cancer. It's our special way of bringing comfort to these young patients.

Rosby Lamm and Heriberto Gonzalez of CHLA (pictured below) look forward to giving their patients a choice of a superheroes cap, animated film characters, and many other styles.

Thank you to the volunteers who took the time to hand-knit caps. A big thank you to everyone who brought a brighter day and smile to these children.

    Children's Hospital L.A. (CHLA) Blood Drive

September 14th was a great time to be a Superhero at our Children's Hospital Blood Drive to show our support of our team member's son, Yssa, Longo's own Ironman. It was a huge success with 76 generous donors participating. 

 

Since our partnership with CHLA, Team Longo and our guests have saved over 1,500 lives!

 

Remember,  blood is a gift - straight from the heart. Your heart.
