Event Details

The Giving Spirit: Hands. Heart. Help. Hope.

The Giving Spirit is an all-volunteer, Los Angeles-based non-profit  organization that unites volunteers to reach out to local individuals and families who are homeless. Twice a year volunteers gather to assemble survival kits filled with daily necessities. The kits are specifically designed to help people experiencing homelessness survive their harsh realities. Volunteers have the unique opportunity to distribute the kits directly to those who need them most. For many volunteers, the chance to connect with those less fortunate is a life-changing experience that affirms the ever-present need for kindness and compassion.

TGS Volunteers extend their hands and their hearts to those in need, 
providing both help and hope.

Organizer

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.
