60th Anniversary Food Drive

Thur. November 9, 2023

Thank you, South Bay Community


Thursday, November 9th, was an incredible celebration as the community came together to celebrate Six decades of empathy in action at the Volunteer Center. The core of our mission is to bring the community together, and it was wonderful to feel embraced and appreciated by all of you. Thank you to the Chamber, Mayor Chen, Torrance City Council, and so many of our community leaders for taking the time to donate, volunteer, and celebrate this significant milestone with us. Your presence made this event truly special. Cheers to more milestones as we continue to meet urgent needs in our community through empathy, kindness and volunteerism.

How to Organize a Donation Drive 


Whether at our annual Food Drive or year round – One of the most hands-on ways to assist the Food for Kids or Operation Teddy Bear programs, is to organize a donation drive. We encourage the community to be empowered and inspired by a volunteer experience and leverage your impact by holding a donation drive for your organization, business, or neighborhood.

When organizing a drive, we encourage you to follow best practices established for a successful drive including spreading the word through social media posts, posting a sign and collection box, considering an “impact day” at the office or in-store drive at a grocery outlet, and offering an opportunity to package up the donations with your fellow volunteers.

Donations can be dropped off M – F 8:30 am – 4 pm at 1230 Cravens Ave, Torrance, CA 90501
