Salvation Army - Skid Row Outreach

As the area called Skid Row continues to grow in downtown Los Angeles, The Salvation Army will continue to be there for the individuals who live there. By offering lunch every Tuesday and Thursday this is the first step in reaching out to assist in the individual needs of the homeless. Please join us in "Doing The Most Good" for those in need.

Volunteers arrive at 10:00am to help prepare the food at the LA Central Corps. From there food is packed in the canteen and everyone will go as a group to Skid Row. The outreach is over once all of the meals are gone, typically between 12:45-1pm.
