Thanksgiving Project 2017
HELP US FEED FAMILIES
Turkey in a Tote
History and purpose
For 18 years, our school has participated in a Thanksgiving tradition to support less fortunate families throughout Los Angeles. We continue to partner with Ocean Park Community Center (OPCC) by doing a food drive to supply food to their Pantry for clients to access.
Founded in 1963, OPCC has grown to become the largest provider of housing and homeless social services on the Westside of Los Angeles County. OPCC clients include at-risk youth; people dealing with physical illness, disabilities or severe mental illness; women and children experiencing domestic violence; and Veterans --- all aimed at improving the self-sufficiency of the individuals and families served. Their goal is to end – not simply manage – human suffering by providing food, shelter, and clothing to homeless persons and their families. For more information, please visit their website at www.opcc.net.
OPCC Volunteer Days
In an ongoing effort to offer meaningful community service experiences for children, we will be offering opportunities to come together with parents and faculty at OPCC. Everyone will have the opportunity to tour and learn more about all of the services that OPCC offers and then lend a helping hand where needed. We are excited to offer this invaluable opportunity to our caring community. Stay tuned as we will annunce these dates soon.
