Panera Bread employees help the homeless at the Society's Cardinal Manning Center



Led by District Manager Jacob Bustos, 11 employees of Panera Bread today helped brighten the day for more than 160 men, women and children at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul's Cardinal Manning Center (shelter) in downtown Los Angeles.

The employees collected and personally distributed loaves of bread, bagels, orange juice, toothpaste, toothbrushes, wet wipes, coloring books, crayons, children's activity books, colored pencils and Bibles.

Following the distribution, the Panera Bread volunteers received a tour of the shelter.

Thank you Panera Bread!
