Description

To serve the disenfranchised members of our global family, here in Los Angeles County, by producing holiday-themed community service projects, designed to teach volunteer activism on the grassroots level. These events bring the HOLIDAYS to those who may not otherwise celebrate such~ whether by intention, lack of means or circumstance ~ due to homelessness, loneliness, despair, apathy, disabilities, poverty, lack of family, or perceived lack of deservedness. And, with you by our side … We ARE Making A Difference … One Heart At A Time.

Program Description: Volunteers will assist in preparing over 1,600 full Thanksgiving-style meals and will create over 24 free-form, artistic, “from-the-heart” banners for numerous homeless shelter residents at over 18 shelters. This project benefits homeless families and veterans in Los Angeles County.

Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: Volunteers will prepare over 1,600 meals, create 24 artistic and uplifting banners, assemble and package meals, deliver and serve meals at shelters, and clean-up prep facility. Volunteers may also bring cooked turkeys on the morning of the event.

Time Commitment: 3 hours.

Requirements: No special skills or experience required except an open heart and playful spirit ! Please note that there is a minimum donation (participation fee) of $ 5 to volunteer at this event. If this donation is a hardship, we will waive the participation fee on a case-by-case basis. Please let us know.

Benefits: We bring the HOLIDAYS to those who may not otherwise celebrate such ~ whether by intention, lack of means or circumstance ~ due to homelessness, loneliness, despair, apathy, disabilities, poverty, lack of family, or perceived lack of deservedness. Volunteers will help a less fortunate or disadvantaged child or homeless adult feel that they are deserving and worthy of attention, care and celebration. And, enhance and strengthen their self-worth and dignity.
