Many of those in our community spend a great deal of time in service that is an expression of their faith. In order to help individuals know what missional efforts their fellow church participants are supporting – and in order to make it easier for individuals to get involved in those efforts they would like to support – we provide this list of service opportunities.
ADULT LITERACY PROGRAM OF THE LA PUBLIC LIBRARY – The students in the program are adult immigrants from countries all over the world. The Adult Literacy Program has need for volunteer tutors. The tutoring program is structured in a way that the volunteer doesn’t have to have any experience as there are books to follow and it is pretty structured. Currently there is a waiting list of about 30 “students” at the Platt library branch who are waiting to get a tutor so there are many opportunities available for volunteers.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY RE-USE STORES – Habitat for Humanity ReUse stores are like the Goodwill of construction items, parts, furniture and related home items Lowe’s and other home improvement stores often donate new items too. If you don’t have time to volunteer – just go shopping, or donate items to the stores. Know that .95 cents of every dollar goes to building homes for low income families. The closest stores is located at 9606 De Soto Ave, Chatsworth, CA 91311. They are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. They are closed Sundays and Mondays.
