Yesterday, El Chavo posted about Giving All Year Long and a person named “Art” commented with a link to ELA CAMP. The East LA Community Arts and Mural Program is “committed to using arts to empower youth and to reclaiming neglected, impoverished, and/or deteriorated neighborhoods by the people of our community.” The program provides creative outlets and inspiring activities for kids while improving neighborhoods with art. (Read their full vision statement here.)
There is no specific volunteer page but I’m sure you can find out how you can help by contacting
Elwing or Arturo* Gonzalez at (626) 576-1901

*Hmmm…could this be the same “Art” who left yesterday’s comment?
