Event Details

The Giving Spirit (TGS) is an all-volunteer, Los Angeles-based organization that serve the homeless population one individual at a time.  Through generous individual and corporate donations, TGS is able to purchase items for survival kits to distribute to people experiencing homelessness.  Twice a year, volunteers gather to pack and distribute the survival kits.

Please join us to be a part of The Giving Spirit's Reach Out Saturday 2010 events.  Complete details are on our website.  Please download and read the Frequently Asked Questions before signing up for a shift.

www.thegivingspirit.org

There are various shifts throughout the event.  Click on the "more info" link to find a brief description of the duties.

Each person needs to sign up individually so that we can keep an accurate count of volunteers. If you are signing up for multiple shifts (choose all of the shifts before you click "Register"), you can copy data from one ticket to the next so that you do not need to repeatedly input basic contact information.  At the top of the second ticket, there is a "Copy data from" field.  Instead of "Select (optional)," choose Ticket #1.

If possible, please bring your completed waiver forms.  Youth must be supervised by an adult, and must turn in a waiver completed by a parent or guardian.    Click here for the from for volunteers 18 years of age and under, click here for the adult form.

Important Information about Saturday Distribution of Survival Kits

Saturday Afternoon we will be delivering the assembled Backpacks to local shelters. We plan on visiting several womens' shelters and would highly appreciate women volunteers.

We will be delivering Kits to various places possibly including: 
Jeff Griffith Youth Center (Downtown); 
Downtown Womens' Center (Downtown); 
San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission (San Fernando Valley), Upward Bound House, and Los Angeles Youth Network.  

Delivery times will vary from 11AM-6PM.  Depending on volunteer availability, you may be able to participate in several visits if the schedule allows. This will be determined on Saturday when you arrive, once we know how many drivers and volunteers we have available.

Please dress casually and modestly, you will be interacting with a population in need.

This will be the most hands-on part of our summer project. We encourage any that can participate to come with an open heart and listening and encouraging ear.

You will be accompanied by an experienced TGS worker, and will be guided on appropriate and encouraging interaction.

If you are a driver, there is a MANDATORY meeting on Sat. at 10:30AM. Drivers must 1) have valid U.S. driver's license; 2) have minimum insurance on their vehicle required by CA; and 3) be at least 18. Please empty out the trunk of your car to maximize space for the survival kits.

The Giving Spirit

Serving the Homeless of Los Angeles one individual at a time. For more info, see our website at www.thegivingspirit.org.

Our format is simple. Your contributions allow us to purchase goods in bulk from discount stores, collect donated items from generous distributors and manufacturers, assemble and fill the bags with the help of volunteers and then distribute the bags directly to our homeless friends throughout this sprawling city.

This is what makes our mission so special: We bring the aid to the homeless, so they don't have to travel long distances carrying all their worldly goods (or leaving them unguarded). In the previous ten years our small group of volunteers has, thanks to the amazing generosity of you and your peers, personally served thousands of souls in Greater LA. You have helped us provide food, blankets, clothing, toiletries, water – and hope - at a time of the year when they feel the most alone.
