What: Engage in fun activities with children from Alexandria House and the nearby community while their guardians attend the Saturday Thrift Sale event.
Alexandria House is a transitional residence for women and children located in the densely populated and ethnically diverse Mid-Wilshire area. Alexandria House also serves its broader neighborhood community by providing educational and enrichment opportunities.
Volunteer Project: Every 1st and 2nd Saturday of the month, Alexandria House hosts the Thrift Sale to provide essential household items and services to Alexandria residents and neighbors. During the event, volunteers help by supervising and playing with the children so their guardians can focus on getting what they need.
Impact: Shopping [or doing anything!] with children can be challenging. Volunteers support guardians by keeping their children safe, occupied, and entertained so they can focus on sourcing what their families need.
Additional Details: Volunteers must be 18+ and embrace all ages, genders, cultures, languages, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations.
Accessibility: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
