J. SEYMOUR FAMILY CENTER PROJECT(ongoing):
HELP US COLLECT FOR THE HOMELESS: We continue to seek items throughout the year for the Jeff Seymour Family Center in El Monte who provides for the homeless and their children.

Nothing in large packages, please as most recipients have no place to store such items.
LIZ CAMERON FOOD PANTRY (ongoing):
Keep on bringing the food! Everyday, children and their families go hungry, right here in our own community. By supporting our neighborhood food bank at La Casa by donating food items to our food pantry, you are helping to solve this problem! Food donations go directly to families who otherwise might not have enough to eat.

- bags of pasta
- boxes of cereal (NOT the larger sizes)
- canned proteins (tuna, chicken, ham, etc.)
- pasta sauce
