Gift Thanksgiving Joy to Karsh Family Social Service Center

The Karsh Family Social Service Center offers an array of cross-sector, integrated, and co-located social services. The Big Give, started 14 years ago by Wilshire Boulevard Temple and for the past six years hosted by the Karsh Family Social Service Center, is a cornerstone neighborhood event that provides Thanksgiving-meals-in-a-bag for families in Koreatown experiencing food insecurity. Each bag includes all of the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal for a family of four -- from the turkey to the pumpkin pie and everything in between.

Providing these Thanksgiving-meals-in-a-bag for the community involves significant costs, including sourcing holiday food items during a time of peak demand. Your donations will help them safely provide quality groceries. Please visit our website to learn more and donate: https://karshcenter.org/big-give/donate/ Please email madeleine@karshcenter.org if you have any questions.
