Through partnerships with other non-profits and outside organizations, this program addresses a different cause and organization with each visit to expose Bruins to a sampling platter of volunteer opportunities and to pique volunteers’ interest in programs they could work with on an ongoing basis.
Looking for ways to participate with One Bus, One Cause? Here are a few ideas:
Friday, November 20, 2015 – Welby Way Charter Elementary School – 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
Welby Way Charter Elementary School is a public school located in West Hills, California, a suburb of Los Angeles County, in the western portion of San Fernando Valley. The school serves over 800 kindergarten through 5th graders. Welby Way is on the cutting edge of academic technology and is also proud to be the only LAUSD elementary school that, from 2012 to 2014, hosted an introduction to computer science event called Scratch Day.
On November 20, volunteers will complete painting projects including basketball backboards and murals on the playground floor.
Saturday, November 21, 2015 – Newcastle Avenue Elementary School – 8:30 am to 1:30 pm – REGISTRATION FULL

Thursday, November 26, 2015 – Westside Thanksgiving (VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System campus) – 8:00 am to 1:00 pm – REGISTRATION FULL
Westside Thanksgiving, a community dinner and holiday celebration, is one of the largest Thanksgiving Day events in Southern California. Since 1982, the event has welcomed thousands of guests each year, offering hot meals, clothing and blankets, immunizations, haircuts, medical consultations, and family entertainment for homeless individuals, veterans, students, and low-income families from across the region. The event is entirely staffed by volunteers and all items are donated by community members.
Join the Volunteer Center on the bus to give thanks and give back as part of this community-wide effort! UCLA volunteers will be assigned to kitchen duties, clothing distribution, and guest services. Transportation will be provided from campus.
