We Care East L.A. provides toys for children who might not otherwise receive any holiday gifts, as well as boxes of food to help families prepare nourishing meals during the holiday season.

In 2010, We Care East L.A. served over 2500 community members, but unfortunately had to turn away 400 more.  And since last year the need has only grown. They are expecting twice as many people in need to come to their doors in 2011.

The We Care East L.A. holiday community event for 2011 will be held on Saturday, December 17th from 10am-2pm at 122 South Evergreen Avenue in Los Angeles.  There will be free food, free toys for children and free groceries for families in need, but they can only serve everyone if we work together.

Alliance Environmental Group and our partner AirTek Indoor Air Solutions will be sponsoring the We Care East L.A. again this year in support of their goal to serve every family in need.  If you would like to join us, call Viviana Tello at We Care East L.A. at (323) 702-4372 or send her an email at wecareela@yahoo.com.

I would like to take a moment to be thankful for what I have.  There are so many in our community who are hungry and need support.

Thank you.
