Each year, our Good Neighbor Awards honor some of the dedicated neighbors who volunteer their time to help seniors and people with disabilities get the resources and support they need to age and thrive in their own homes and neighborhoods. We are delighted to honor Leroy as our 2019 Good Neighbor Honoree for the OMI Food Network.
After retiring from his career in the SFPD as a Police Commander, Leroy Lindo might have been expected to take up a well-deserved station on his front porch, relaxing in a swing chair. Instead, he continues to help his neighbors by volunteering with the Oceanview Merced Ingleside Food Network.
Leroy’s efforts, in particular, making our community a No Hunger Zone, reflect his lifelong commitment to the OMI community. His neighbors are delighted to see him every week when he delivers food to them. He takes time to chat with them and build personal relationships, which forms the basis of a strong community. He is appreciated for his continuous dedication to a lifetime of service.
The Community Living Campaign is grateful for his generosity of spirit spent in serving his OMI neighbors each week.
