Los Angles Food Bank - Volunteer Day

Marymount gets into the spirit of volunteering!
Marymount staff and faculty kicked off the new year by volunteering at The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Volunteers helped package, sort, and assemble food packages that feed needy individuals, families, seniors, and children in our community.
On behalf of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the network of 900 charitable agency sites in Los Angeles County, thank you for choosing the Food Bank for your volunteer service project. The fact is; without volunteers the Food Bank would not be able to accomplish its mission “…to mobilize the resources of our community to fight hunger.”
