Seasons greetings SRC! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday! This holiday season, our team of SRC distributes toiletries to the homeless in places like Long Beach.

Firstly, we went shopping in the dollar stores where they have a supply of amenities (i.e. toothbrush, toothpaste, tissues, lotion, etc.). Together, we bought 200 items! Then the SRC team met up at Sky’s house to package all of the items in a neat fashion. Each member was stationed to a toiletry item. In their stations, members opened Ziploc bags, place the item in the bag, and pass it down to the next person until all seven items are packed. Then we inspect all packages to see if any amenity was missing/broken. With a team of eight people, we manage to get over 70 bags!

On the next day, the team went to volunteer at Someone Cares Soup Kitchen, preparing delicious foods like eggs, pancakes, fruit, and yogurt. Some of the breads would be donated from the Soup Kitchen and were given to the homeless after this event.

Then we proceed to pack up the fresh breads in a few boxes to give to the needy.

Eventually, SRC drove all the way to Long Beach to deliver hygiene, water, and food items to the needy. Students were hard at work lugging the ton of goodies into the center of the park. People around the park gathered in a straight line to receive water, food, and toiletries. Many of the homeless left bright smiles and signs of gratitude by saying ‘Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,’ showing appreciation to the volunteers as they will have things to keep them warm for the holidays.
