L.A. Works is a nonprofit, volunteer action center that serves the Los Angeles area with hands-on community service projects. For this year's major service day, L.A. Works Day in August, they will be compiling backpacks and school supplies for children transitioning out of homelessness in Los Angeles-based nonprofit programs. Altadena Library wants to help! Will you join us?
From July 9 through July 30, collection containers will be stationed at the Main Library and Bob Lucas Branch for interested community members to drop off new (or like new) backpacks and new school supplies like packs of ballpoint pens, highlighters, and protractors. Need ideas of what to donate? L.A. Works has an Amazon wishlist from which to order directly: http://goo.gl/jURSnX
We hope you'll join us in supporting this worthy cause that will prepare students in need for the new school year!
