June Food Drive for M.E.N.D.
June 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
WHAT IS THE SERVICE PROJECT:
This is a TWO-PART project – you can do one part or both! For 50 years, MEND (Meet Each Need with Dignity) has continuously served the most vulnerable in our community, including those who are homeless, unemployed/under-employed, very low income, and older adults. One of MEND’s services is a Food Bank. A lesson they’ve learned in the last year is that their food bank can run out of food within a week….thus food drives are the #1 imperative MEND has right now. Since it is their 50th Anniversary, they are hoping to hold 50 food drives during the summer — and LATLC will be one!
Here are the two parts of our project:
- COLLECT FOOD BETWEEN JUNE 1 – 15: We want friends, families, law firms, affiliate companies, EVERYONE to start collecting canned food. (No glass containers). You can also donate directly from their AMAZON WISH LIST. They are currently in need of:
- Pull top canned meats (tuna, chicken, beef)
- Pull top canned soups
- Canned fruit
- Power/granola bars
- 1-2 lb. bags of rice and bean
- DELIVER TO MEND: On JUNE 19, from 12 – 1 pm, you can deliver the items to MEND in Pacoima. If you need help with pick up or delivery, contact [email protected] or call the office 844-44-LATLC.
JUNE 1-15 – COLLECT canned goods between now and June 15.
JUNE 19 – DELIVER canned goods to 10641 San Fernando Rd, Pacoima, CA 91331. More details will be emailed to volunteers closer to the date.
WHO THEY ARE: MEND- Meet Each Need with Dignity offers a range of comprehensive services delivered with dignity and respect by exceptionally dedicated staff and volunteers. For 50 years, MEND has opened its doors to the most vulnerable members of our community and over the years has become one of the most comprehensive and empowering poverty relief agencies in Los Angeles County.
