SoCal Chapter Volunteers at the Downtown Women’s Center

The Southern California Chapter’s volunteer charity for 2015 is Downtown Women’s Center. The Center provides support to end homelessness through offering housing programs, personalized case management, on-site medical health clinic and public health outreach, health workshops and screenings, safe warm drop-in day center offering meals, education, computer literacy and employment assistance for homeless women.

On July 16 members of the PLUS Southern California chapter hosted a volunteer event at the Downtown Women’s Center, where chapter members prepared a meal for 150 women at the center and sorted donations.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and energy!

PLUS New England Chapter Volunteers in Boston

The PLUS New England Chapter braved 90 degree temperatures on Thursday, July 30 to volunteer for the Esplanade Association, an organization that works to restore and enhance Boston’s Charles River esplanade.  This event was part of the PLUS Foundation’s ongoing chapter charity program.

Volunteers did a stellar job on several gardening and cleanup projects near the Hatch Shell, and the Esplanade Association was extremely appreciative of their efforts.  Following the gardening activity participants ventured to Harvard Gardens to network and cool off with a cold cocktail.

Thanks to all who participated in this great volunteer event.
