I responded to one the ads placed by this organization to help with a library event. I purchased books and items for the children. I drove to compton to the meet up place which was a library. I carried the stuff into the library. I waited and waited. I called Ron over and over. He didnt pick up the phone. Total waste of money and time. I dont like ti slam charities but I want to warn people.
The description of the work I volunteered for was supposed to be feeding homeless vets, as well as a sock drive, and a $10 donation for haircuts... So a friend and I show up with clothes and food. There were no Vets in sight, just homeless people. "Coach Ron" asked for the $10 donation and got all mad and upset when I told him I didn't have it... I told him I brought food and clothes, why was he getting mad about the money. So we ended up leaving, left the clothes and food of course but it was such a disappointment. Really seemed like he wanted to pocket the money... NOT RECOMMENDED!! You are better off just giving away clothes and food on your own, don't give this man any money!!!
Wow, what an experience!
Just recently found out that Skidrow is supposedly the most "dangerous" place in Los Angeles -- hard to believe! The people at Gladys Park is lovely and appreciative! If you hang out long enough, you get to meet some amazing people!
Also Coach Ron is extremely passionate and enthusiastic about the work he does for the community! An amazing person no doubt.
I recommend people to join in and help out! It is a phenomenal experience.
