Each year the BHWC collects and distributes school supplies to 80 children at the Westwood Transitional Village and the Bessie Pregerson Center of the Salvation Army.
Your tax deductible monetary contribution to the BHWC would be greatly appreciated to offset the cost of nearly $3,000 (we have raised $1,725 so far).
The Transitional Housing Village is a housing complex and pre-school located in West Los Angeles; its mission is to reunite homeless families into their own residence, rehabilitate and find work for the parents — all while allowing the children to maintain a normal life and attend local schools. By providing these backpacks, the children can start school on a level playing field and focus on their education.
Monetary donations are greatly appreciated as items are purchased in bulk at wholesale prices.
$35 donation will buy one K-8 filled with supplies
$40 donation will buy one HS backpack filled with supplies
Thank you to Laurie Okum for being gracious enough to personally put all of the supplies together in her home for delivery during this challenging time.
