Every year like clockwork Local 11 musters volunteers who participate in annual Los Angeles events as a way of giving back to our community for the opportunities that are afforded us. One of the variables that is tremendously affecting our City and communities of Los Angeles is the growing population of homelessness that we visually see every day. One of the many contributing factors of homelessness is our returning Veterans. But every year Local 11 partners with United Way of Los Angeles to help eviscerate Veteran Homelessness by participating in the Homeless Hero’s Run / Walk Event. More importantly, our Members turn out to help volunteer their time to help facilitate parking and providing assistance to the multiple thousands of Angelenos who participate in raising monies that are matched by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to help assist with creating veteran shelters.
