Midnight Mission - Serving Food to our Homeless Community
Saturday, July 6, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM (PDT)
Did you know that approximately 50% of the homeless population in Los Angeles County alone is made up of African-Americans? These are our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, cousins and friends that are living without a place to call "home".
Join the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals as we partner with Midnight Mission to serve dinner to homeless residents living in the downtown Los Angeles area at the Midnight Mission facilities from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 15 and Saturday, July 6.
The Midnight Mission is one of the oldest continuously operating human service organizations in the Los Angeles region. Centered in the Skid Row area of downtown Los Angeles, The Midnight Mission runs one of the most efficient direct service operations in the county. With only four (4) executive managers throughout its ninety-eight (98) year history, The Midnight Mission has been a consistent beacon of light for those with no where else to turn.
For questions or concerns, please contact the LAULYP Community Service Committee at (323) 825-1517 or CSC@laulyp.com.
