CityLabs Community Fair Today: 50 Local Non-Profits Need You!
If you've made helping out a priority in 2010, but don't know where to begin, grab a $5 bill and head over to Downtown today from 11-4 to check out dozens of great options at the CityLabs Community Fair event. The purpose of this one-day fair is to give Angelenos a chance to browse the booths set up by 50 local non-profits to interact with staff and representatives who can talk about what they need and what you can do. You can even sign up right then and there to volunteer.
Among the participating organizations are LA Guerrilla Gardening, Heal the Bay, Causecast, City Year LA, LA County Bicycle Coalition, Tree People, SPCA LA, Ciclavia, Food Forward, 826LA and many, many, many more. Your $5 suggested donation entrance fee gets you a drink and a raffle ticket, and you can check out some free workshops, listen to DJ Bryan Davidson, score some free seedlings courtesy of the LAUSD's Green program, and help Causecast pack and assemble food boxes for the city’s hungry.
