Word about the blanket drive leading up to the serving this morning spread fast. It reached our family and friends, the LA running community, and big biz. Together, we helped the desperate situation in Skid Row with over 300 blankets in addition to coffee, sports drinks, bottled water, kombucha, snacks, pastries, toilet paper, and socks. # In no particular order, thank you to @topsondowns, @speedplayla, @koreatownrunclub, @_bearave, @frank.ayala, @theherbz, @nightterrorsrun, @__wwenddyyy, @isabelh4908, @mr.reh, @spry_society, @kitwanajohn, @movementrunners, @brendaleon, @healthade, @marjesvela, @wholefoodssouthbay, @itshalo, @naiif_a, @nathaliepointu, @fernandotacan, @runwiththelab, @hi_msdinaba, @gracelovechurch, @mr_peluches, @dbvillela, @architecturesucks, @fer454ssport, @andyflacko, @mishellyy20, @jenayallday, @runyogarosa, @jayna_lehman, @coza_86, @wavyymarv, @edgargiron, @goodvibes_tc, @tuxedo.pants, @nella_bella_ella, @christal_lauren, @la1aaron, shalomnunu, @dylschuler, xtonix17, she_would, geoffespino, @lyloke, @francest.la.vie, @oscaramora89, starbucks, grdnunez, since_eighty5, kristin_dillon, ray_munoz, @ema.haro, @pepperthedobie, @ddabroy, lissruns, habitblcx, piap.co, nancycasanova, newbalance, blacklistla, monirose23, @vbmun, @runangeles, @jollyvix, @freelance, @gmansl, @uhhh_lise, @eddierodri9uez, @simonsaid83, @supersonic_runner, Freddy, and Natalia. # HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM GIOVANNI AND NOEL. # # # # # #alleviateskidrow
@paulysproject said it best: after Thanksgiving, we still have the rest of the year to be thankful, generous, and compassionate. # Thank you to everyone that supported today’s serving. # Link to photographs in bio. # If you’d like to help Skid Row in the coming weeks, please check out @paulysproject. He needs help toward his annual giving back event on December 2nd. # We’ll be back in Skid Row later in December once Gio is back from Cornell. Drop a DM if you want to support.
We appreciate all the former and new volunteers, donors, and sponsors that made today a success. #skidrow
The future remains bright!
Helping Skid Row since 2014. #skidrow
It only took about a minute for the line to form around the block. Even with a van and truck full of clothing, shoes, water, Gatorade, coffee, fruit, toiletry kits, and miscellaneous items, our serving ended well before the hour mark. Thank you to Skid Row for being patient and peaceful toward our kind-hearted volunteers the entire time. Pics in bio. #skidrow
