Downtown LA Food Drive

In September 2012 I was walking down the street in downtown LA when a homeless man approached and asked for change to buy food. As I always do I gave him the change in my pocket

At that point I felt inspired to do a food drive. I have a Foundation and I thought I can do a food drive. I contacted the Los Angeles Mission and two shelters. The Los Angeles Mission responded. I got five buildings to participate and we raised just over 500 pounds of food. In 2013 we had thirteen buildings participate and raised over 1100 pounds of food.

This year my goal was twenty five buildings and I achieved that goal and we already raised over eighteen hundred pounds of food. The drive ends on Monday November 24, 2014.
