June Madness!

Where to even start with June!

Here are some highlights:

  • Hiked locally and collected abundance of hygiene items for a women’s homeless center, Downtown Women’s Center.
  • Partnered with Laurence School and collected hundreds of stuffed animals. We then passed out the stuffed animals to children receiving services with Children’s Bureau of LA.
  • Partnered with Food Forward on several occasion to pick up and drop off fruits to individuals in shelters and living on the street.
  • Hosted a community picnic and had our kick off to COLLECTING BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES! A great success and outing with our adopted Beard House of Valley Village, housing and services for adults with disabilities.

 

So much more happened this month and we are thankful for all our members and volunteers! Team work!

We hosted so many events and drives that we don’t know where to start!

From partnering with a private school, Laurence in hosting a stuffed animal drive, collecting over 1,000 for children living below poverty,  hiking to The Observatory, to partnering with Food Forward and passing out fruit to many homeless individuals living on the streets, and taking out the ladies of our adopted house, Beard house, of Valley Village, housing adults with disabilities! It has been a great adventure, community outreach, friendship building, and feel good in your heart kinda month—now June is a whole other story!

 

Here are some pics to give you an idea of some stuff!
