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:
Saturday, August 6, 2016 – Family Resource Fair at Hollywood Recreation Center and Park – 9:45 am to 3:30 pm
The Office of Assemblymember Richard Bloom, in partnership with the Youth Policy Institute and After-School All-Stars, will be hosting a free Family Resource Fair at the Hollywood Recreation Center and Park. This resource fair is an opportunity for families to interact with various nonprofit and government organizations and learn about programs and services offered in their neighborhoods. Assemblymember Bloom’s staff will distribute backpacks and school supplies to local children to help prepare them for the upcoming school year. The day will be filled with education, games, specialized trucks to explore the ocean floor and experience a 5.7 magnitude earthquake, and much more! Volunteers will assist with event setup, distributing school supplies and food, and facilitating festival games. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided for volunteers.
