Get Trained to assist in Los Angeles Disasters and Emergencies

L.A. Works encourages its members to attend Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. This all-risk, all hazard training, presented by the Fire Dept trains you to assist conventional emergency response teams in times of crisis and emergency. Training is offered in locations all over Los Angeles.

The training is a seven session course (one day a week for seven weeks), and is provided free of charge. The next round of classes begins in January 2006. For more details click here.

Here's Another New Thanksgiving Referral - Sunday, Monday, Tuesday

Wow. Thanksgiving requests are coming in quickly. Do you live in Long Beach / South Bay area? This one is a referral to "For the Child". They need volunteers to help prep and distribute Thanksgiving meals this Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. It's very short notice, but I know they'd appreciate some help.

New Thanksgiving Day project added to calendar

We've just gotten a call asking for 10 volunteers on Thanksgiving Day. It's short notice, but we know there's a lot of you looking for a chance to help out on Thanksgiving Day. Here's the Project Details:

The Hollywood Senior Multipurpose Center needs 10 volunteers to help deliver Thanksgiving holiday meals to homebound seniors in the Hollywood & Silverlake area. Delivery times will be from 8:00 am - noon.

This project will be supervised by the HSMC staff, rather than the L.A. Works Project Leader since volunteers will all be working seperately on deliveries.

Volunteers must have their own vehicle and be able to deliver 10-12 meals.
