Hey guys! Thanks to everyone that came out and supported Giv LA in our very first volunteer event.
Yesterday (6/11/11) we had a great team show up to help us at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. We sorted and packaged corn, cabbage, and oranges which were sent off to people in the area that are desperately in need of food. By the end of the volunteering session, we helped to package 10,000 pounds of food which will feed 30,000 families!
Afterwards we headed over to YardHouse at LA Live for mimosas and bloody marys as we bonded over food and celebrated a job well done.
Thanks to all of our volunteers! We hope to see you all again at our future events. If you would like more information on how to become involved in this great organization, shoot us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
