12 Nov Healing Hearts and Families with School Supplies
Organization: Our Place Healing Hearts Foundation
Lives Impacted: 100
Our Place Healing Hearts Foundation, located in Los Angeles, CA serves the larger areas of Riverside, Los Angeles, and Orange County. They are geared towards providing an empowering environment for battered women and children in the community. Through different programs like a mentoring guide, social services advocacy, hosting enrichment and empowerment activities within the communities, we encourage our women and children to prepare for a better future. Besides our programs, we also host events that service families going through crisis that need a lending hand.
On July 13th, 2018 our foundation held our very first Annual Back to School Drive. Thanks to the generous amount of backpacks, we were able to offer these items and more to the community. Together with our wonderful sponsors we were able to service 100 school age children k-12 with school supplies, backpacks, books, and raffle prizes towards the 2018-2019 school year.
These donations helped families in need that couldn’t provide the basic tools to ensure their children get off to a great start. It’s unfortunate that many families are struggling due to high rates of unemployment and school budget cuts, so products like these helps sustain our community. One family with 7 children expressed how grateful they were for receiving these backpacks filled with school supplies, because both parents have been struggling in the job force. Many families who attended our back to school drive benefited tremendously and the gratitude from the students reminded us why we do what we do. Thank you Good360 for your support, this donation helped us give back hope to many in the area.
