The Jazzy Ladies

April 17, 2016

Come help us honor some deserving ladies!

Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal and Dr. Sophia Momand

I have to admit I wasn’t at the Drop-In-Center this Sunday. We went to a nephew’s wedding in Atlanta. I hear things went well though. We have a dedicated staff and volunteer coordinators.

We served approximately 300 and had 45 volunteers.

Vedanta was our guest chef and sponsored a great Indian meal. Many Students came to volunteer from Cal State Long Beach. Computer lab continues to run smoothly although very busy.

Brand New Day Health Services was present and informed clients about their Health Plan and we also gave out hygiene kits and blankets donated by Tina.

Thank you for reading our article faithfully! Remember last week I shared that our printer/scanner wasn’t working at DIC? Because of this opportunity to let you know how things are going we have had an offer of a printer from Ron Elwood! He even has a good supply of ink for us too! What a blessing!

We are having slow ticket sales this year for our spring fundraiser, Jazzy Lady, this coming Saturday, April 23, 2016. There are so many events going on around town including a BIG one for the Boys and Girls Club. As a result we have seats left! YOU can still come! We even have a few comp tickets available if you just can’t swing the cost for a support ticket but would enjoy coming, please let me know. It will be a great evening with a jazz band and lots of food stations all night!

Come help us honor some deserving ladies, Vice Mayor Suja Lowenthal and Dr. Sophia Momand who work with us at the Urban Community Drop In Center. For questions regarding our Spring event or for donations contact Arlene (562) 714-1155.

Best,
Arlene
