During this past Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I spent time surrounded by family and friends. We shared a delicious meal, gave thanks for all that we have in our lives, took in a couple of movies and even disconnected from our plugged in, online existence for a while.
Tragically, many in our community were not able to enjoy the holiday in that manner. Perhaps they are out of work, in poor health, suffering from malnutrition and/or homeless. Whatever the case may be, there is tremendous suffering in our midst.
While there are many ways to help those in our community who are in need, one activity that you can participate in with your entire family takes place this coming weekend. It’s called the L.A. Scavenger Hunt and the goal of this event is to raise $100,000 in material goods for the Union Rescue Mission, the L.A. Food Bank and the L.A. Burrito Project.
So if you’re wondering how you might spend part of next weekend, consider this event. You can have fun while doing good. This event can sell out, so the organizers, FYF Fest, suggest signing up soon!
