Each week, the UCLA Volunteer Center will post a comprehensive list of food fundraisers on UCLA’s campus. These fundraisers support student organization and campus causes while providing a cheap alternative for dining. If you are an organization who wishes to participate and promote your fundraiser, please fill out our Hunger Hotspots application.

Cause: Latinas Guiding Latinas focuses on helping underprivileged young Latinas in the East Los Angeles area where our four school sites are located.
Our goal is to raise enough money so that we can offer at least two scholarships of $250 each and one $500 scholarship to well deserving LGL graduating mentees who are going to attend college in the fall.
Our graduating mentees are on their way to promising university careers. Latinas Guiding Latinas is proud of our mentees for their hard work and dedication. We want to help them by providing some financial assitance. We do not have the financial resources to provide large scholarships but our humble scholarships will help them cover some of their upcoming expenses. Our goal is to bolster our message that Latina/os can reach a higher level of education and excel at the university level. These students have their foot in the door and we wish them the best of luck. With your support, we can continue the wonderful tradition which began in 1987 by the founding Latinas Guiding Latinas members of helping Latina/os in the East L.A. community.
