Giovanni Pantoja and Noel Velasco crossed paths for the first time in late 2011 as a result of their involvement with a local mentoring program – The Partnership Scholars. The core of the program consists of college preparatory workshops and culturally enriching monthly trips. During one of these trips, Giovanni and Noel were humbled by the dire conditions on the streets of Skid Row. Instead of allowing their concern to fade, Giovanni and Noel set out to design a sustainable plan to help one of the largest homeless populations in the nation and motivate others to seek answers to community problems. After months of hard work, a wishful thought transformed into Alleviate Skid Row.

Update 1

Good evening, Supporters!

It has been a while since my last update and I think it is a good time for one since there are a few opportunities to help the less fortunate this month.

The property management company in charge of the building where I work graciously allowed Alleviate Skid Row to conduct a week-long toy donation drive in benefit of impoverished families and their children. After the drive is over, I still have until December 3 to accept toys before I provide them to our partner organization that is going to distribute them among established non-profits. Toys should be at least $10 in value and unwrapped.

In addition to the aforementioned drive, Whole Foods in Downtown Los Angeles is collecting blankets this entire month on behalf of Alleviate Skid Row. They will be used at a lunch we are going to prepare from scratch and serve to the women at The Downtown Women’s Center in late December.

Lastly, I am collecting used clothing until Friday, 11/18 on behalf of a friend that runs a group called TrashFreeEarth. The group is focused on the education of trash and its effect on our environment.

Alleviate Skid Row would be grateful for any assistance toward these three efforts. Please email us if you are interested: contact@alleviateskidrow.org.

Thank You,
Noel
