Palisades-Malibu YMCA Executive Director Jim Kirtley told Circling the News that 10 volunteers showed up on Thursday to help prepare and hand out groceries to 50 recipients at 821 Via de la Paz.
“The amount of gratitude from the participants is absolutely amazing,” Kirtley said, noting that the FeedLA program will operate through the middle of December and that volunteers are needed every Thursday from 10 to noon to help pack the donated food and from noon to 2 p.m. to distribute food.
“The participants are great humans who desperately need the help the Y volunteers and City of LA are providing through this program.”
Kirtley said that his Y is hiring and once staff is added, it will be able to open with Saturday hours. (Visit:https://ymcala.workbrightats.com/jobs/611600.html). Currently, the Y is open Monday through Friday, from 7 to 11 a.m. and from 4 to 7 p.m.
