On Saturday, April 16th, 2016, L.O.V.E. Foundation partnered with numerous community organizations to host the 'Street Store' Event at the Hollywood Recreation Center servicing temporarily homeless youth and temporarily homeless adults in Hollywood, California and the greater Los Angeles area. We partnered with Los Angeles City Council Member Mitch O'Farrell's office, California State Assemblymen's offices Mike Gatto and Richard Bloom, the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, and the City of Los Angeles Aquatic Division. Our communities partners included Street Store, HavASole foundation, Aztecs Rising, Project Q, and volunteer organizations of UCLA Student Union.
We served over 500 people. Hint water donated over 500 bottles of flavored water and we gave out 900 bottles of water in total, 200 burritos, and 200 peanut butter an jelly sandwiches. Supplies given to our temporarily homeless youth and adults included: 250 backpacks with hygiene product, 200 brand new pairs of shoes, and clothing. We provided 100 showers to those in need. Live music provided by Heather and Michael Powers and an incredible DJ spun the hits.
A huge thank you to all for making the day so special.
