Help foster youth by rallying those around you to gather as much canned and dry goods as you can.
- 2039 Pomona Street, Costa Mesa (Launch Pad)
- Nov 3, 2019
The youth at the Launch Pad are mostly single mothers, working full time, going to school and looking after their little ones. They all come to the Launch Pad without a car which means that they are taking the bus for the first year or so. Try fitting in all that and getting to the grocery store. Let’s help launch them into success. For a month let’s gather dry and canned good and then let’s bring them together at the Launch Pad for a “Ton of Love.”
Drop off the items on “Giving Tuesday,” - December 3rd at the Launch Pad any time between 9am and 8pm. There will be someone there to greet you and take your goods.
Items that are perfect:
Canned Tuna, chicken or salmon
Peanut Butter or any nut butter
Meals in a can (soup, stew, chili)
Low-sodium canned vegetables
Spices (cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, salt-free spice blends)
Canned foods with pop-top lids
Healthy snacks (granola bars, nuts, dried fruit)
Please avoid items packeds in glass.
No candy or sugar-sweetened drinks
