More than 40 advisory class presentations, and lunch time tabling events were conducted by Girls Revolution members in efforts to educate their peers, teachers and school community on issues that impact our homeless populations.
400+ items were donated
Two donation drives were held throughout the school year to directly assist our homeless population. In November we held a school wide Thanksgiving canned food drive, and in April we held a baby hygiene drive. We received over 200 canned food items and more than 200 baby items such as pampers, baby bottles, baby wipes, rubber duckies, baby lotion & creams.
36 CMS families assisted
With the items collected from our Thanksgiving canned food drive and with the help of local Councilmember Price who donated 32 turkeys and we were able to buy 4 gift cards for families without ovens. In total, we were able to create 36 Thanksgiving meal baskets. We targeted Clinton Middle School families who identified as homeless and gave them a Thanksgiving meal basket to ensure they and their families had something to eat for the holiday.
15 Councilmembers, and over 160 audience members reached
Girls Revolution advocated at City Hall in front of local elected officials, staff, and audience members on how we can be doing more to assist our homeless population.

The items collected during our baby hygiene drive were donated to, Center for Life Women's Shelter, which is the largest shelter for women experiencing domestic abuse in South Los Angeles. The items were given directly to the 150 women residing in the shelter.
