DTLA Historic Lofts Unite!
For the first time ever The Higgins, The Douglas, Eastern Columbia and Pan American are uniting to host a food drive. Let's show Downtown what can happen when we combine forces! There will be a box left in each building's lobby and a list of food items which are best for donation. For those of you who prefer a monetary donation, you can do that too. Just click the "Donate Now" button on the right. Let's kick some a**!
This is who we are supporting:
For 42 years, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has been mobilizing resources to fight hunger in our community. They distributed 59 million pounds of nutritious food in 2014 – the equivalent of 48 million meals – to 280,500 clients each month in L.A. County.
One in six people in Los Angeles County experiences food insecurity. L.A. households make choices each month between paying for food and utilities, transportation, housing or medicine and medical care. The many faces of hunger in our community include the most vulnerable such as children and seniors.
Every $1 donated allows the Food Bank to distribute the equivalent of four meals through their agency network or Food Bank programs. Plus, our contributions save the Food Bank time and resources incurred through traditional Food Drives.
Please make a gift today to help us reach our team fundraising goal! Thank you for joining with us to give hope to our hungry neighbors.
