Give the gift of a hopeful future this holiday season.
With only a few weeks left in 2018, you can play a special role in helping L.A. youth be set for success by helping build 250 “Welcome to the Corps” care kits for new LA Conservation Corps Corpsmembers who are committing to changing their futures by joining the Corps.
We are looking for a volunteer champ to help promote our Holiday Drive to collect items for youth kits from local workplaces, organizations, places of worship, schools, book clubs, neighborhoods, scout troops, etc. Support will also be needed to collect, sort, and build each kit over the winter holiday season.
How This Helps Our Community
Your support will gift a kit to each new young adult Corpsmember at graduation ceremonies once they complete their month-long orientation. Kits will be filled with items like socks, safety glasses and gloves, first aid kits, soap and toothpaste and other personal items that some of our struggling youth need to get ahead.
Our nonprofit’s mission is to provide at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training,education and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community. www.lacorps.org/warmwelcome
