Scouts from Beverly Hills Troop 110 will be accepting food donations for Upward Bound House on April 25. Donations can be made from 2-4 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church of Beverly Hills, located at 504 N. Camden Drive.
Upward Bound House provides families in crisis with short-term emergency shelter on the Westside and in South Los Angeles. Throughout their time in shelter, children and their parents receive daily grab-and-go breakfasts and hot evening meals, as well as clothing and household items. Parents meet with case managers, housing locators and employment specialists to achieve stability, while staying in a safe and comfortable living space with their children. Donations help local homeless families during times made all the more stressful by the pandemic.
Upward Bound House is in need of food donations such as bread, canned items, water bottles, juice boxes, lunch box supplies as well as toiletries. The Scouts received a $100 Hand Up for Homeless Families grant from the Hershey (chocolate) Heartwarming Project. The grant will pay for cardboard buckets to be used to collect and deliver the food. Contactless donations can be made on April 25 by simply pulling up to the curb and handing the items through car windows. The scouts will also remove items from car trunks.
