400 UCLA Volunteers Serve @ URM

This morning over 400 volunteers from UCLA came downtown to serve in a multitude of projects at Union Rescue Mission. From cleaning, painting and beautifying, to serving meals, playing with children, and taking part in water walks, the students really took “Day of Service” to a whole new level.

This event is part of a larger project, UCLA’s 2nd Annual Volunteer Day, which includes about 5,000 student volunteers serving in several communities throughout the greater Los Angeles area.

We are so grateful to all the students who came out to give us some much needed help. Rev. Andy Bales said “It is exciting to see so many energetic students giving their all to make a difference in our community! Thanks for making such a difference in the lives of our precious men, women and children experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles”.
