12th Annual Holiday Outreach, providing toys, books, personal hygiene products, food and more to hundreds of under-served children and their families. What began as Random Acts of Kindness has become a trusted partner for many families struggling to make ends meet. Families come as far as 40 miles away; many of them arriving at the Teen Center as early as 6:00 AM.

We are looking for compassionate volunteers who are willing to give of themselves for a minimum of 2 hours. Our volunteers have opportunities to serve as greeters and escorts, as well as distributing socks, toys, books, snacks and more! Come join us as we continue to give families a hand-up and not a hand-out. You are a Dream Maker!

Description

Living Waters - West L.A. dba A Child’s Dream, is an organization driven by the fact that each child’s dream is to be loved, protected and taken care of. Our hearts are strongly connected to inner-city children, many of them in single parent households or being raised by other family members because of substance abuse, prison or abandonment. We are compiled to assist these families in any way possible.

Our goal is to assit families by providing backpacks filled with school supplies, new shoes, clothing and other products at no cost to the familiy. The only requirement is that children must be present. We also have a Holiday Outreach in which toys, clothing, perosnal and household products are ditributed.

Postcards of the event are distributed to the Cuvler City and surrounding LAUSD Schools. We have alao partner with The Depsrtment of Social Socials who advises many of their clients of the annual events. Many people return as a result of the previous events.
