In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we honor our LOOPERS who nominated non-profits in their communities that they love the most. LOOPERS--You are incredible. We were blown away by the sheer number of amazing submissions that poured in over the last few weeks. Thank you for inspiring us to make the world a better place, every day!
Each of these organizations is receiving a $1,000 Grant from LA LOOP:
Children's Action Network - as nominated by Rory Laurie
Stepping Forward LA - as nominated by Lisa Stern
Welcoming the Stranger - as nominated by Inez Recupido
St. Vincent Meals on Wheels - as nominated by Sandy Flynn
Swipe Out Hunger - as nominated by Libby Jacobson
LOOPIn Grant submission spotlight:
"Welcoming the Stranger provides an extremely important service by providing ESL, Computer, and US citizenship preparation classes to immigrants and refugees FOR FREE. After taking our classes, our students go on to better paying jobs, certificate programs, and even college. They are better able to function in their neighborhoods, at work, on public transportation, & in stores. They can communicate with doctors, pharmacists, and their children's teachers. These people are able to become fully immersed in the American way of life."
