Special Event Details
L.A. Works Day of Service 2013
Dates: 07/20/2013 - 07/20/2013
8:00AM - 2:00PM
From the Disney Concert Hall to LA Live, over the past ten years Downtown Los Angeles has undergone an urban renaissance with vibrant arts and music, competitive sports teams, world-class culinary experiences, and increased economic activity. However, while the city thrives, downtown nonprofit organizations continue to deliver services to thousands of marginalized, vulnerable individuals and families who are struggling to survive.
We're excited to be offering two volunteer opportunities this year. Our 3rd Annual Service Crawl and a stationary school project. Check them out below!
About the Service Crawl
This summer corporate and community volunteers will explore the heart of LA's urban core as they join together for a transformative day of service. Teams of volunteers will race through Downtown Los Angeles for our third annual Service Crawl, completing significant service projects at shelters, youth programs, missions, food banks, libraries, schools, parks and parklets, and other nonprofit organizations that serve the members of our community. At each site, the teams will learn about the mission of the nonprofit and the challenges it and its clients face. After providing valuable hands-on support to the organization, the team will solve a clue to unlock the location of their next volunteer project. The teams will be racing for exciting prizes like airline tickets, hotel stays, restaurant gift cards and more! Corporate sponsored teams will be eligible for special prizes and perks!! >>>Learn More and Sign Up
About the Stationary School Project
For our volunteers and corporate sponsors who prefer to transform a single nonprofit site, hundreds of the L.A. Works Day participants will have the option to roll up their sleeves and paint, plant, landscape and build as they work together to revitalize the grounds of a downtown LAUSD Title I Elementary School. This project provides great benefit to the community as research shows that children learn better in an environment that they can feel proud of and comfortable in. >>>Learn More and Sign Up
