A group of social workers and community volunteers organized and participated in a food drive for Harvey Milk Day, this past weekend. The Los Angeles Chapter of the national volunteer group Gay For Good partnered with Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office on a food drive for local families. The Mayor’s East Valley area representative, Caroline Menjivar, who is also a MSW, helped coordinate a safe drop-off for all donations. A big success and great to see our LA community coming together for a good cause!

Gay For Good is a national volunteer organization dedicated to connecting members of the LGBTQ community nationwide and providing virtual and in-person support for various causes. Their aim is to, over time, build a network of support, goodwill, and understanding between the LGBTQ and greater communities through regular collaborative volunteer service projects.
