The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving is called Giving Tuesday and has become a global day of giving back. It’s an opportunity to return a small portion of the blessings we’ve enjoyed throughout the year. And while there are many places to put your gifts to work we would like you to consider a gift to LSS Community Care this year.
Nearly 25% of California’s population of young children and youth live in poverty! Many are homeless, hungry and desperately in need of loving care, nourishing food, and a safe place to call home.
Hunger hurts! No one should have to go hungry, especially children who are totally dependent on grown-ups for their health, safety and well-being. No child should ever have to spend a night on the streets or in some parked car because they have no home! (Read about Corey and how LSS Community has helped him start living his dream).
Here’s How You Can Help
We are promoting a Text-to-Give campaign through social media. We would appreciate if you could go to our Facebook page, like us, and share the post about #HungerHurts on your own timeline. We are hoping for a great response through social media and you can help us get there.
A New, Easy Way to Give!
Simply text a gift of any size to 626-261-7157. This will not charge your phone bill! A simple form will allow you to securely enter your credit card info and a receipt will automatically be sent for your tax-deductible donation! It takes less than two minutes and can change a life forever!
Why Give to LSS Community Care?
For nearly 70 years, LSS Community Care has been standing in the gap for kids and their families, as well as hurting men and women. Throughout Southern California we have reached out to care for the poor, the underserved, and the powerless, regardless of race, creed or orientation.
Today LSS serves more than 46,272 individuals and families providing tangible goods and services such as food pantries & hot meals, clothing, emergency mobile clinics and prescription assistance, school and hygiene packs. We also offer rental referrals and help for utilities and exciting new sustainable solutions for lifting people out of poverty. When disaster strikes, LSS will be there, bringing humanitarian assistance with housing, vouchers for hotels, bus transportation, or gasoline. But all this only happens through the faithful giving of people like you, who care and desire to give something back.
Happy Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday!
