Mayor Riordan Visits L.A. Thrift Store

Former mayor of Los Angeles Richard Riordan visited the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store Friday, September 21, 2012 in Los Angeles.  Riordan currently directs the Riordan Foundation, among other ventures. The Riordan Foundation's mission is to provide mostly low-income students with access to high-quality education.

"He wanted to know what we do," said Society Deputy Executive Director David Garcia. "We were glad to see him stop by."

"With all the mayor has done he is still committed to the community," said Society Director of Operations Jim Bibb.  Mayor Riordan toured the Society's administrative offices and store with Society Assistant Executive Director Susana Santana, Deputy Director Garcia, Director of Operations Bibb and Riordan Foundation President Jessica Flores.

"Do you need donations?" asked Mayor Riordan. "Of course we do!" answered Garcia.
