I can't really celebrate on September 11th and dining out for no particular reason just doesn't seem to be appropriate. So what can I do on Sept. 11th? I'd like to help some others that are less fortunate than me. The Monday Night Mission looks like a great idea and cause. So, if you have some time, would like to help others...
I'd like to check out this cause with just a small group of our Foodies to see if they can use our support and find out the best ways we can help this "under the radar" community group. This evening there will be a large group from USC is another reason I want to keep this initial meeting small.
About the Monday Night Mission: We meet every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night to feed our Homeless Brothers and Sisters on Skid-row.
The sole aim of Monday Night Mission is to feed the less fortunate of Skid-Row who are turned away from Skid-Row shelters.
Monday Night Mission Overview We feed our Homeless Brothers and Sisters on Skid-row every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night. We meet at the Burger King at 7.30pm at 700 West Cesar e Chavez ave, Los Angeles CA 90012.
We will then prepare food, organize car pools, and aim head to Skid Row. Anyone and everyone is welcome! Don’t worry about what you can or cannot bring! Bring yourself!
Please wear close-toed footwear and be prepared for cold or rainy weather. If you would like to bring food, below is a list of food items that can always be used, however, anything you can contribute is appreciated and will make a difference! We aim to feed anywhere from 150 to 350 people every night, but the numbers will vary.
Also, please feel free to bring any clothing items, blankets, toiletries, etc. you would like to donate.
