Last Thursday, August 22, the Southern California Chapter helped charity Lava Mae by assembling hygiene kits.

They also have one-stop Pop-Up Care Villages to dramatically expand access to essential services for people living on the streets. Thank you to the Chapter, the PLUS Foundation, and the volunteers for supporting this wonderful cause!
