Friends and Family, I have been involved in a leadership course over the past few weeks. One of the best things to come from the course is that our teams gets to choose a community service project. We have chosen Lutheran Social Services Community Center in Long Beach. They assist low and no income members of the community. Are you familiar with the phrase "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"? That is their mission. They assist people with immediate needs such as food, clothing, diapers, etc. They also teach people computer skills, how to write a resume and how to interview, etc. in order to break the cycle of poverty. I am asking for donations on behalf of this needy community. I have had the privilege of creating a health fair for these people and was humbled by their gratitude for what we did. Our team will be volunteering hours to update the computer services, support with structural needs of the building, and donate funds so that LSS will be able to restock their diaper, food, and clothing gifts for the Long Beach community. Thank you!
