The Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
We will be joining Hope for Los Angeles for this start to finish event – prep, cook and food service. It’s a great activity for first time volunteers or doing a food service at a shelter.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
ONLY RSVP IF YOU ARE 100% SURE YOU WILL ATTEND! IF YOU CANCEL LAST MINUTE OR ARE A NO SHOW, YOU ARE DIRECTLY AFFECTING THE SERVICE.
You may bring a hat and hair nets will be provided. Please dress comfortably and consider that some food may splatter on you while cooking. Aprons will be provided.
For safety concerns, please wear closed toe shoes.
Free. Available on site in secure parking lot.
Founded in 1914, The Midnight Mission offers paths to self-sufficiency to men, women and children who have lost direction.
DESCRIPTION OF OPPORTUNITY
Volunteers assist with everything from serving food, to busing tables, to handing out silverware and condiments. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and make some beautiful human connections!
This is a great event for first time volunteers to learn about how a homeless shelter operates. Plus we’ll be given a tour of the facility by someone who is in their recovery program.
