Sheehan Adopt-A-Family 2014

$5,955 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 44 months

According to the USDA, 1 in 4 children (50 million Americans) struggle with hunger on a daily basis. Food shortages are higher among women raising children alone.Melissa's Mutt Hutt ("MMH"), a Manhattan Beach and Santa Monica based dog walking and pet sitting service ( www.gotmutt.com) will work again this year with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) Adopt-A-Family Program to provide at least 25 local low-income families with toys, clothes and food this holiday season. MMH is proud to be partnering again with the Vikings Charity ( http://www.vikingcharities.com) one of the Southland’s leading charities for disadvantaged children. In order to make this happen we need  donations.

On December 8, 2014 we will be having a free holiday catered party for hundreds of disadvantaged youth from 11am to 3:00pm at the Alpine Village at 833 W. Torrance Blvd, Torrance, CA 90502. The party will include a choir, 10 unwrapped toys for each child, a DJ and Santa Claus. In addition we will be providing the families with a weeks supply of food (BASKET), warm clothes, toys and more with your generous donations on December 24th and 25th.

For suggested donations, please see the MMH Wish Lists at www.target.com (Melissa’s Mutt Hutt) and Toys R Us at www.ToysRUs.com (Wish List #: 36318167)

Other items such as gift cards, clothes, new toys or monetary donations are also very appreciated. Please help us and make a donation today! Or for In-Kind donations please contact Melissa at melissa@melissasmutthutt.com to make arrangements.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) Adopt-A-Family Program is dependent on the generosity and contributions of individuals, groups and organizations, to make a significant difference for needy families during the holidays. If you would like to sponsor a family of your own, please contact Erica Moya, the Departmental Volunteer Coordinator Toy Loan and Volunteer Services at  EricaMoya@dpss.lacounty.gov
