Portantino to Honor 25th Senate District Women Heroes of the Pandemic

State Senator Anthony Portantino will host the Women Heroes of the Pandemic Recognition Ceremony and honor exceptional women from the 25th Senate District for their dedication to the health and safety of our communities.

The pandemic created tremendous challenges for Californians and each of our honorees went above and beyond the call of duty to protect, serve, and heal. Whether it was through their job, volunteer efforts, or community acts of kindness, our honorees embody the kind of strength, compassion, love, and leadership that we needed to get through these difficult times."

25th Senate District Women Heroes of the Pandemic include Fran Robertson, the Executive Director of Sowing Seeds for Life in La Verne, a food security program that serves over 10,000 people each month in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. As families faced new economic challenges during the pandemic and the demand for emergency food services were on the rise, Sowing Seeds for Life responded by hosting a drive-thru pantry. Thanks to her leadership and dedication to the community, countless residents received pantry items and meals during this difficult time.
Each of our honorees were nominated by their peers, supervisors, community advocates, family, or friends.  The recognition ceremony will take place virtually on Thursday, May 26 at 5:00 p.m. Click here to register for the event.
