Be Like Santa and Distribute Toys and Food for Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club

For the Holidays, Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club will be giving toys and food to children and teens in one of the most impoverished areas in the City of Los Angeles. Volunteers are needed to help setup and organize donated toys, hand out toys to children and teens at the event, decorate, pack food into bags, hand out bags of food, and assist with sign-in for the event. Please wear warm clothes, closed toe shoes, a mask and park in available spaces nearby. They are also are also in need of help with set up, packing bags of food, and distributing all food to families. Event will be outdoor/indoor with the possibility of changes based on Covid19 developments and weather. They are also in desperate need of new toys for both boys and girls ages 2-17 years. They always need toys for older children and teens as many people tend only to give toys for younger children. They are looking for cross age and gender neutral items as well, which work across ages. Items like board games, headphones, wireless speakers, sports equipment, and art supplies are big hits! Leggo sets are also always great! For teens, curling and straightening irons, headphones, gift cards, sports team sweatshirts, and college t-shirts and sweatshirts are always needed. A great way to make a big impact is to run your own toy drive with friends and family or at your workplace. Set a goal of 20-50 gifts. Last year they made sure 631 children received gifts for the holidays and received food for their families to enjoy a holiday meal at home. YOUR HELP WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE for children struggling during uncertain times. Please drop off donations by Monday, December 20, 2021: Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club 2635 Pasadena AVenue Los Angeles, CA 90031. Please email Carlyn Oropez at coropez@labgc.org if you have any questions. Check out their Amazon Wishlist here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2G8QEWD7PS0QQ/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist Must be 18 and older to volunteer.

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. 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.
