For our third SCCLA Cares fundraiser, we are partnering with Far Bar to deliver hot meals to domestic violence survivors and low-income (non-senior) residents served by the Little Tokyo Service Center.
Little Tokyo Service Center provides housing and services for affordable housing buildings in Little Tokyo and an undisclosed location for domestic violence survivors. These tenants are working class individuals who had hours cut or lost jobs due to Covid-19 and are struggling to put food on the table. The meal you are providing is one less day of worry and one big sign of support and hope.
Whether or not you're a SCCLA member, you can make a difference and provide a hot meal for just $7. Let them know that #SCCLACares.
Also, for every new SCCLA Member registration, SCCLA will donate one additional meal. For every new SCCLA Lifetime Member registration, SCCLA will donate an additional 10 meals.* There's no better time to join SCCLA!
Donations of any amount are welcome and are not tax-deductible charitable contributions.
* For new member registrations during the SCCLA Cares campaign only. SCCLA memberships run January 1-December 31.

Thanks to your generous donations...
On May 14, 2020, SCCLA fed Garfield Medical Center's frontline medical responders with a delicious lunch and bubble tea from Bopomofo Café.
On May 26, 2020, SCCLA fed TELACU-Monterey Park's senior citizen residents with chicken and rice boxed lunches from Ikka Sizzling Pot. For many of these high-risk, low-income senior citizens, trips to the supermarket or restaurants are not feasible, and many who remain at TELACU are weathering the pandemic with no family nearby. The facility has also been receiving fewer food and grocery donations due to social distancing measures. Thank you to the staff at TELACU-Monterey Park who distributed the lunches and continue to serve this community.
SCCLA thanks our SCCLA Cares donors, without whom none of this would be possible.

What is SCCLA Cares?
As we all continue to adapt to the new norm during COVID-19, SCCLA would like to do our part for our community.
Through SCCLA Cares, our fundraising campaign, we will use 100% of donations to purchase meals from local restaurants or food trucks to feed our community, such as frontline medical responders, the elderly, and those impacted by the pandemic.
If you know of a local restaurant or community that would like to participate, we'd love to hear from you. Stay tuned for future fundraisers and updates on our fundraising goals. Thank you for supporting your local eateries and communities.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments, or feedback.
Thank you and stay safe.
