This initiative was born due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. San Pedro was struck with thousands of residents losing their jobs. Luna and other partners held the first fundraising of its kind and delivered over 500 meals, toys, and pantry gift bags to islanders in need on December 20, 2020. Distribution took place in several areas around town, with the central hub of activity being at Crocs.
