Community Service

by HULA_Admin
The Howard University Alumni Club of Los Angeles County takes pride in serving the Los Angeles community in which it calls home. Through various community service activities such as serving food to the homeless, reading to kids, and spending quality time with senior citizens, we not only build a stronger organization but we carry on our alma mater’s mission to eliminate inequalities and be a catalyst of positive change within society.

Past Events

August 31, 2019
Elder Care Day Party
We had a great time with the residents of the Villa Maria Elena Care Center. Six of our LA Bisons came out with a few of their friends for about 10 volunteers in total. The Day Party included games, manicures, crafts, karaoke, and dancing. We joined them in light refreshments including their iced coffee break. We laughed, talked and listened. It was extremely fulfilling. We would like to thank all that came out to join us!

May 31st – June 2nd, 2019

We joined The Giving Spirit to help assemble life-saving Survival Kits and distribute them around Los Angeles to the thousands of families, individuals, and companion animals who are without shelter, water, or food.

Reading to Kids
Volunteers read a pre-assigned book to students at Politi Elementary School during a ninety-minute session, that also included an arts and crafts project related to the book. At the end of the session, volunteers provided each child with a book of his or her own as a reward for attending.

DECEMBER 2018
Toy Collection for Angel Tree Program

Date: Saturday, December 7-15, 2018
We are partnering with Faithful Central Bible Church to collect toys for the Angel Tree program organized by Prison Fellowship, which is dedicated to providing children of incarcerated parents with Christmas gifts. Attendees at the HUAC-LAC Holiday party on December 8th are asked to bring at least one new unwrapped toy, game, puzzle, clothing item or school supplies valued between $15-$25 for children ages 2-18 to assist in our efforts of making sure no child goes without a gift this Christmas. If you are unable to attend the holiday party but would still like to donate, please email communityservice@labision.org to arrange the pick-up or drop-off of your item.
