The UCO Drop-in-Center is a community center for homeless people and the working poor in down town Long Beach. It provides a haven from the weather and the harsh conditions of the streets on Sunday afternoons. For full details check out http://www.urbancommunityoutreach.org/dic.

This opportunity is for Sunday food service. THIS IS FOR EVERY SUNDAY (EXCEPT FOR THE MONTH OF JULY, 2011). The volunteer day is 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You may join for a couple of hours or stay for the day. THE GREATEST VOLUNTEER NEED IS FROM 12 NOON TO 4PM.   Food prep starts at 8 am, and that is also when there is great need for help.

If you are interested just show up and check in with with Brad Lara-Gagne ([masked] or [masked]).

PARKING: Park in the lot at Cedar & 3d in one of the designed spots for the church or on the street (free on sundays).


*While this event is weekly, this Meetup will organize to participate on a monthly basis. The strongest need for volunteers is at the end of the month.  If you feel inclined to volunteer at this event on other Sundays, please feel free!


** If you would like to help donate (food or monetarily) to this cause, please contact Brad Lara- Gagne at info above.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
