We did hiring for HMSHost at LAX, who needed full-time Baristas, Cook IIs, and FFAs (Cashier). The pay is competitive and the opportunity is great, so many people will now be starting off their New Year off with a great new job!
The RightWay Foundation is the charity of choice for "When Lives Matter," a play about two realities exploring race, justice, and equality. We are receiving 100% of the proceeds from the January 20th showing, thanks to the wonderful director Monti and his team. We appreciate their effect on the reality our foster youth are experiencing.
Please buy your tickets here. If you want to read more about the play, please visit www.whenlivesmattertheplay.com.
Update: This play was amazing in its story telling and impactful observations. We can't wait to see what Monti and his team do next!
We are collecting toys with HipHopIsForTheChildren.org to distribute to our foster youths' kids and foster kids in children's court. If you want to drop off a donation, our boxes can be found throughout the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw mall: in our office (Suite 195), next to guest services (by Sear's), in Mall Management (by Macy's), in the security office (near Mall Management), or in the housekeeping office (by the food court). Thanks to the mall for supporting this toy drive. Thank you to those who donate, who are going to make the holidays better for foster kids.
Update: The toy drive went great! And we were able to hand out toys to more than 20 families. We appreciate the participation of the Mall Management, who consistently brought in the most toys. Thank you to everyone who donated! You brought a lot of joy to kids for Christmas.
