L.A. Works is proud to celebrate its 25th anniversary year by partnering with LA Coalition to End Youth Homelessness (LACEYH), to focus public attention and the collective efforts of thousands of volunteers in a single day kick-off of hands-on service projects for youth in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. As Los Angeles’ largest volunteer network, L.A. Works builds bridges between volunteers and the region’s nonprofit community.
About L.A. Works Day
On October 1, 2016 thousands of corporate and community volunteers will engage in hands-on service projects (i.e.: building gardens, benches, tables, landscaping, painting, tile mosaics, and murals) in Hollywood to enhance nonprofits, shelter facilities for youth, and public school sites with 20% of their population consisting of youth without stable housing. Volunteers will also assemble hygiene kits and other basic need distribution packets for the 11,000 LAUSD students without stable housing, and participate in interactive opportunities, including a service fair for homeless youth. Teams of volunteers participating in the day will include: elected officials, large corporations and small local businesses, schools and universities, local community members, families, and groups from the entertainment industry and sports teams.
