The Giving Spirit: Hands. Heart. Help. Hope.
The Giving Spirit is an all-volunteer, Los Angeles-based non-profit organization that unites volunteers to reach out to local individuals and families who are homeless. Twice a year volunteers gather to assemble survival kits filled with daily necessities. The kits are specifically designed to help people experiencing homelessness survive their harsh realities. Volunteers have the unique opportunity to distribute the kits directly to those who need them most. For many volunteers, the chance to connect with those less fortunate is a life-changing experience that affirms the ever-present need for kindness and compassion.
TGS Volunteers extend their hands and their hearts to those in need, providing both help and hope.
