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:
Monday, May 30, 2016 – Veterans Home of California, West Los Angeles – 9:30 am to 1:30 pm
The Veterans Home of California in West Los Angeles (Cal-Vet) is the largest veterans home in Los Angeles County, providing long-term health care for approximately 400 residents. On this One Bus, One Cause, volunteers will celebrate Memorial Day with Cal-Vet residents by painting a new mural on one of the residential floors, playing indoor and outdoor games, and serving and assisting with a special lunch. This project is a collaboration with the UCLA Operation Mend Undergraduate Association, which works to support the efforts of Operation Mend and local veterans organizations.
