For Cushman & Wakefield’s Second Annual Week of Giving, ASPIRE collaborated with CWFL, HOLA, UNITY, and WIN to more than 150 toys for donation to the following local organizations:
- A Place Called Home, a youth and community center that serves as a safe haven from the streets of South Los Angeles, delivering educational and artistic programs, counseling, and mentorship to youth and their families
- Little Tokyo Service Center, which offers social welfare and community development services for low-income individuals in Little Tokyo
- The Midnight Mission, an organization in Los Angeles’ Skid Row that provides men, women, and children with services including recovery, family living, job training, education and workforce development programs
Los Angeles also hosted a food drive benefiting the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, an organization that works to mobilize resources in the community to alleviate hunger, sourcing and acquiring food and other products to distribute to needy people. ASPIRE took up a collection among local members to purchase 300 pounds of rice for donation.
“Giving back to our communities is one of ASPIRE’s key objectives so we were thrilled to participate in the Week of Giving. We are so proud of our members for their generosity and for going to such great lengths to help those who are less fortunate,” said Lloyd Legaspi, Chair of the Community Outreach committee.
“Collaborating with the other ERGs was a great experience,” said Monica Min, Chair of the Career Development & Events committee. “Everyone working together towards a common goal of spreading joy to under served communities… It truly exemplified the spirit of the holidays.”
