Ways to Help
L.A. Regional Food Bank
The Los Angeles Chargers donated $250,000 to keep hunger relief services working for vulnerable Angelenos. We encourage those who can to join us in supporting the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Funding will help hire temporary workers, operate Mobile Pantry Units and maintain rigorous health protocols to ensure safe, reliable service to vulnerable populations.
Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Children's Hospital Los Angeles, which has had a patient test positive for COVID-19, is seeking financial donations, in-kind donations of food for their employees and donations of grocery store or Amazon gift cards for patient families to help meet critical needs.
As the number of COVID-19 cases grow, fewer people will be eligible to donate blood. Los Angeles County is rapidly approaching a blood emergency. The Red Cross is adding staff and resources to prevent shortages, but they need donors. Even in this environment, donating blood is a safe process. If you are able, please consider making an appointment to donate blood below.
Goodwill of Orange County
Goodwill of Orange County has served our community for nearly 100 years, and we aren't going anywhere. While our stores and donation sites our closed and no revenue is coming in, we are continuing to provide virtual workforce development services, supporting veterans and their families with emergency services, partnering with local food banks to distribute critically-needed food resources, and more. Your generous gift will allow us to continue this important work and create more GOOD in our community.
