Short Story

When we started Community@, we knew we wanted to be reaching not just within our Scorpion community, but within our greater communities as well. A lot of people have been hit hard this year, so with gratitude on the mind, Thanksgiving seemed like a great time to start making a difference in our expanded community as a group.

 

In our search for reputable organizations to partner with, we discovered Travel & Give, a non-profit founded and managed by women of color. While operating globally, they have recently put more focus on local communities, including those right here in Los Angeles.  Executive Director Martine Harris is a speech and language pathologist, working with numerous disadvantaged and disabled children.  As school closures have left many families struggling with consistent meals this year, TAG started funding healthy meals for families they worked with. Unfortunately, their funding for this program has run out, and they are working on finding a way to keep it running. In the meantime, we have a great opportunity to contribute and give some of these families a special Thanksgiving meal.

 

We are looking to sponsor about 10 families and a group of teens at Youth Emerging Stronger, a Los Angeles teen homeless shelter. We are partnering with a local Black-owned catering company/chef who will be crafting a Thanksgiving spread. We are looking at about $320 per family (average family size = 8 people). Our target for the fundraiser is going to be $4,000 to cover the 10 families and group at the shelter! The goal is to sponsor as many people as possible, spreading a little bit of extra joy where we can.
