Donating Baskets to Family Bridges
Benicia, CA – The Lucky Clover Trading Company, a division of Kingsum, Inc. announced today that they donated baskets to local nonprofit organization Family Bridges for their 44th Annual Fundraising Dinner – “And Justice for All” on June 2, 2012 in Oakland, CA.

As their services grew, the organization eventually changed their named in 2000, to Family Bridges. Forty years later, Family Bridges assists about 10,000 East Bay residents with programs and services that range from adult day health care, a child care center, senior center, and a social services program. Though they specialize in serving the Asian community, Family Bridges services are open to all types of people.
Michael Yim, President and CEO of the Lucky Clover Trading Co., supports Family Bridges efforts to provide services to individuals in the community. “The guidance and care that Family Bridges provides seniors in the community humbles us. We're privileged to contribute to this fundraiser in support of their mission.”
