Little Free Library

We're excited to be working with the 4th grade Girl Scout troop at Marquez Charter School on the Little Free Library project. The girls will build and decorate the library and then help stock it with books.

Thanks to the Pacific Palisades Women's Club for donating to this project.


Protect the


We network with other groups such as Heal the Bay, 5 Gyres, the City of Los Angeles  and Kehillat Israel to offer information and activities about protecting our environment.

We organize and promote volunteer projects that individuals of all ages can participate in.  Recent activities have included a food collection for Westside Food Bank and serving dinner to homeless clients of Turning Point Transitional Housing.
