Dig Deeper…..
Over the past 20 years an event that started off by feeding 9 people ended up growing and giving so much more, its called Gobble Gobble Give. This year on Thanksgiving Day over 24,500 men, women, and children who live on the streets were fed. 15,000 toothbrush kits, 10,000 warm hoodies and beanies. 10,000 brand new warm socks were handed out. Currently their Feed the Homeless program is in 17 cities from San Francisco to Harlem NY, from Detroit Mi to Austin Tx, from the OC to Nashville.
 

Skid Row Christmas is presented by Tradecraft Farms & Stick-e-vape who are celebrating their year, they decided to take their annual holiday party to another level by creating a space to gather and give back to those in need. The goal is to curate a Huge Los Angeles Christmas Celebration to raise awareness and much needed supplies for the winter. Guests are encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift to donate at the door, they will be wrapped and distributed all over the city. Gift recommendations: blankets, hoodies, packs of socks, food baskets, etc. This is a cannabis friendly event. A portion of the proceeds will go to LA’s homeless.

Ps… the cost of the VIP “Wellness” Experience is about the cost of a top shelf bouquet and comes with a bunch of highlights. You give a gift and get a gift. But a ticket: https://bit.ly/skidrowxmas
