LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 3, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities (LATLC) celebrates the success of its third annual “Day of Dignity” event, which took place on October 28, 2023, at The Center in Hollywood. This event reaffirmed LATLC’s unwavering dedication to helping people without homes in the Los Angeles community.
Collaborating with THE CENTER and BLESSED SACRAMENT CATHOLIC CHURCH, “Day of Dignity” set out to make a meaningful impact by offering showers, clothing, food, and a remarkable change from previous years. Humanity Heroes generously provided 325 backpacks, each brimming with 23 full-size items, replacing the toiletry kits distributed in previous events. It was estimated that about 400 people showed up for the annual “Day of Dignity” and although not everyone was able to receive a backpack, there was still plenty to be offered.
The event offered a wide range of services, including manicures, haircuts, podiatry check-ups, and legal help. In addition, attendees had the opportunity to get a passport that allowed them to visit different booths in the area. By collecting three stamps from these booths, guests could receive a backpack filled with essential items. The designated areas included:
Service Center: Legal Assistance, Employment Opportunities, Housing Support, Meals
Pampering Zone: Clothing Distribution, Manicures, Haircuts, Showers
Health & Wellness Zone: Podiatry, Flu Shots, COVID-19 Shots, Pet Care
The legal services were provided in a private area for confidential consultations, focusing on immigration, housing, employment, and expungement/criminal law. A most generous thank you to the Mexican American Bar Association as well as the Social Impact Center for assisting with the legal services. In collaboration with Paul Mitchell School, around 10 hair students were available in several tents to provide haircuts to the Los Angeles community.
The success of “Day of Dignity” wouldn’t have been possible without the support and contributions of the community. If you’d like to be a part of this ongoing effort, you can donate here: https://www.latlc.org/donate.
