Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Love For Humanity is a volunteer based Non-Profit Organization dedicated to alleviating hardships and difficult times by helping people in need with food, toiletries, clothing, education and job networking, among others.
Love For Humanity is unique in its ability to work with other organizations such as Family Preservation Agencies, Foster Care Agencies, Religious Charities, and other Non Profit Organizations.
Grocery Bags Program
Through programs focused on Family Preservation, we support organizations like Bienvenidos and Mercy House in helping low income families that find themselves struggling to get out of or avoid homelessness, as well as those families trying to stay together and not lose their children because of the inability to provide for them. Toward the end of each month, when food stamps begin to run out, we provide grocery bags to at least 60 needy families in Covina and Ontario, CA. These grocery bags include non perishable items that will help them feed their families through the rest of the month until more food stamps become available for the coming month.
Program Goals: We hope to provide monthly support to an additional 60 families.
Homeless Feeding Program
On any given night there are approximately 633,782 people experiencing homelessness in the United States. Reports in 2011 estimated that the homeless population in California was approximately 135,928, among the highest in the nation. Pre-packaged meals, bottled water, toiletries, socks and other essentials are being provided to homeless people on the streets, in homeless shelters, and transitional houses on a daily and monthly basis. This includes restocking the pantries of the Ontario Mercy House Walk In Center to providing hot meals to over 150 people at the Valley Rescue Mission in Sun Valley, CA.
Program Goals: The Mercy House in Ontario, CA has requested assistance in providing food on a weekly basis to the homeless that frequent their Walk In Center.
School Backpack Program
More than 2 million children in California live in poverty. This is approximately 1 in 5 children who struggle daily to have enough food to eat. While these children may eat during school hours, many do not have enough food in the evenings or during the weekend. This lack of nutrition not only affects a child’s health, but it also affects their intellectual and emotional development as well as their academic progress. Through our Backpack Program we give each child a backpack on Friday afternoons filled with enough pre-packaged food to last the weekend. Currently we are providing 70 children at Mariposa Elementary School in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and Columbus School in Canoga Park, CA with food for the weekend.
Program Goals: We are working toward providing weekend meals on a weekly basis for at least an additional 200 children by September 2013.
