Pauly's Project: Making a difference - Together!

Fundraisers • Oct 24th, 2017 • (updated: Nov 20th, 2017) • 0 Comments

 

On Sunday, November 19, 2017, CSR created a group service club project in conjunction with Pauly’s Project to give back to the homeless in the skid row community of Los Angeles. Skid Row is no longer just a "row". A huge 54 block section of downtown Los Angeles has been the generally accepted limits of the area. Dozens if not hundreds of camps are set up in this area each with a dozen or so tents clustered.  Our day saw us traveling with a caravan of cars to several of these camps, handing out goods to the very grateful and very friendly population.

Several memeber of CSR were joined in this project with the Covina Noon club, West Covina Rotary and our District Governor Rhagada Khoury plus help with donations from the Covina Kiwanis Club! Thank you to everyone that donated money and/or items.  We were able to give out 150 lots of scarves, knit caps, socks and gloves from our club, over 200 sandwiches, 180 plus bags of snacks, 150 hygiene kits, 10 cases of water, dog & cat food and lots of clothing!  Not only that, this effort helped Paulys Project get over $2000 in donations and helped with the purchase of 400 radio headsets that will be given out at their upcoming December event in Gladys park!

Operation Santa Clothes

paypal_donateThis year, CSR has clothed another group of children in our flagship Operation Santa Clothes program and has now clothed over 35,000 kids at the West Covina K-mart store! We have also been able to provide over $50,000 in scholarships in seven high schools. OSC began in 1994 serving 73 children from one Covina school. The project focuses not only on provided clothing, but giving self esteem, character development, and a sense of caring to these kids. You can help with a tax deductible donation here. See our Santa Clothes page for more information.
