BENEFITING: LUTHERAN SOCIAL SERVICES OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
They say give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day, but teach a man how to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime. This is exactly what L.S.S of Long Beach is about-not just feeding someone for the day but giving them a solid chance to start a better life. From new born babies, to kids, teenagers, to the less fortunate... this program is completely dedicated to giving them the chance to stand for themselves.
Over the last few months I've been involved in a leadership program that has blessed me with an amazing team of beautiful people. The benifits of this program has lead each of us to be actively involved in our communities, states and/our countries in order to tranform our world . As a team we decided to start locally with an amazing program called Lutheran Social Services of Long beach and as a team we made a promise to raise nearly $20,000 dollars, donate 150+ hours in volunteer time, collect baby supplies backpacks filleds with school supplies, and computers in hopes of remodeling and giving the common necessities needed to survive.
It has been a privilege to be involved with a program like this... but we're not complete on our word yet. We still have about $10,000 to raise. And now I'm looking for your help. My goal is to raise over $1,000 dollars. In hopes to be able to achieve the funds and the supplies we has a team promised so that no little soul gets left behind.
One thing I've learned In this program is anything we do will always make a difference. Each individual, aware or unaware, is making an impact in someone else's life. It's up to us on whether that impact is positive. So If your asking yourself "what can I do?" The answer right now is donate :)
With all my Love, Richelle
