Marcus and Christopher Guillen were thanked at the January 22 Paramount City Council meeting for holding a Breakfast with Santa and Toy Giveaway at Progress Plaza through their Just Breathe, the Rocio Guillen Foundation. The Foundation was formed to honor the boys’ mother who lost her life during the horrific concert shooting in Las Vegas. Its mission is to create something positive from something terrible and tragic by helping those in need. The City and Paramount Unified School District identified 25 such Paramount and Lakewood families for the event, and 200 children and 100 adults were served a hearty breakfast with all of the kids receiving toys and gift cards. The Foundation has also committed to providing six youth athletic scholarships for Paramount youngsters and two $1,000 scholarships for Paramount graduating seniors.
