Dear UCLA Volunteers,
We hope everyone is staying safe and doing well during this difficult and unexpected time. As COVID-19 continues to be a concern worldwide, it is during these times when we must come together to help our neighbors in need.
While this pandemic has affected people from all walks of life, it is likely to hit hardest in low-income communities that serve the homeless, elderly, and families with children. As more non-essential work places begin to shut down to limit the spread of the virus, the need for food security in these communities has risen exponentially. This is why your support is so critical.
On behalf of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, the UCLA Volunteer Center is making a commitment to raise funds to provide nutritious meals to those in need during this critical time. We are grateful to have supporters like you who are committed to the Food Bank and their mission to end hunger in Los Angeles. Please help us reach our goal by making a contribution to this virtual food drive. For more information and to donate, please visit: charity.gofundme.com/ucla-volunteer-center.
