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. During a time of such turmoil and widespread food insecurity, they know that the comfort of consistency and tradition is invaluable to our local community, and they need your support to meet their goal of providing this Thanksgiving meal to 6,000 in the week before Thanksgiving (November 14-22). 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.
