‘Tis the Season, Join us in Giving!
For the last three years Topa Insurance has supported We Are Our Brother’s Keeper (WOBK), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded 13 years ago by our Community Relations Manager, Tamara Lewis. This year, we would like to welcome our valued business partners to join us in the giving spirit, providing basic necessities for the homeless.
We Are Our Brother’s Keeper was founded on the principle of taking action against homelessness. WOBK produces branded backpacks for volunteers to request and fill with necessities, such as water bottles, canned goods, hats, blankets, and hygiene products. Once filled, WOBK collects the backpacks and organizes a day for volunteers to hand them out to the homeless on Skid Row. Since 2005, WOBK has distributed over 23,000 backpacks to homeless women, children and men throughout Greater Los Angeles. This year WOBK distribution day is December 15th; busloads of volunteers will travel to Skid Row to distribute the backpacks from a designated space.
Last year, WOBK distributed over 5,000 backpacks. This year, Topa Insurance hopes to help them reach their goal of 6,000.
If you are interested in participating by filling backpacks with your donated necessities, please contact Tamara Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Backpacks will be available for pick up at our annual holiday party, November 15th, for any companies or individuals that would like to participate. Once filled, these backpacks can be dropped off at our office during normal business hours Monday-Friday, or a pick up can be arranged from offices across the Greater Los Angeles Area.
We hope that your holiday season is joyful and meaningful. We thank you for your support in spreading holiday cheer!
