Grants for Local Restaurants to Feed Hungry Families

In partnership with Supervisor Janice Hahn's Office, the Volunteer Center distributed $5,000 grants for restaurants in the South Bay region that were hard hit by the COVID pandemic. The goal of the broader program, which also included peer nonprofits covering other areas, was to help restaurants throughout the entire Fourth District of Los Angeles County while also providing meals to individuals and families in need. Funding was provided by Supervisor Hahn's office.





Special "Hug Challenge!"

We are looking for more donors to sign up to give $20 a month (or an amount that's comfortable), as a supportive "monthly hug" to meet the needs of local families all year long. You will help provide healthy meals, books, school supplies, toys and emotional support and you will keep our volunteers "at the heart of helping" when they are needed most... every single month! 

Your gifts will be matched by an incredibly generous $50,000 challenge grant from incoming Board Chair Dianne Bozler and her husband Hans.
