The nonprofit Faith in Action (FIA)/Volunteer Action for Aging (VAA), operated by Independence At Home, is seeking volunteers and donations for its annual Thanksgiving meal delivery program for older and disabled adults who have minimal resources and opportunities for holiday celebrations with family and friends.
Last year, FIA /VAA provided 1,200 meals to those less fortunate, and once again, volunteers are needed to deliver these meals to clients who are isolated and lonely.
On Thanksgiving Day, volunteers are to arrive at 9am at SCAN Health Plan’s Headquarters parking lot located at 3800 Kilroy Airport Way, Suite 100. Between 9:30am and noon, deliveries will be made in the areas of greater Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill, South Bay, South Los Angeles and surrounding cities.
Those interested in helping with this event are asked to call (562) 637-7103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 1, 2011.
