Venice based charity Badge of Heart aims to feed 500 families this Thanksgiving and they’d like some help with the cause.
“Our goal is to give 500 frozen turkeys to selected families. These
will be distributed through local schools, churches, and also dropped off by LAPD Pacific Division Officers, ” says Officer Ken Lew from LAPD Pacific Division.
Lew was inspired to set up the local charity, Badge of Heart, after witnessing first hand, through his time as a police officer, the struggle low income families and victims of crime face in Los Angeles.
“This year’s Turkey Drive is a way Badge of Heart hopes to ease the burden on families who face hardship in Venice, Mar Vista, Palms, Del Rey & Westchester,” says Lew.
A $20 donation will buy a Turkey dinner for a family of 4.
“None of this could be done without the help of our community and corporate partners. We would love for you to be a part of our growing family. Everything helps us help others. We are seeking donations in a form of financial contribution,” says Lew.
