UpKeep’s Social Impact Club Donates Cans to LA Mission

Ryan Chan

LA Mission and COVID-19

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Los Angeles Mission has been running extremely low on providing supplies, such as hygienic products, clothing, and food, to communities in need. With increased demand for services, while protecting the health and safety of their staff, volunteers, and clients, LA Mission has been facing many challenges as they offer help and hope to those in need.

LA Mission is now in recovery from COVID-19 and need help in rebuilding and restocking their inventory. As they move forward in helping the Skid Row community, they are currently asking for more canned food items and have been hosting a drive-thru canned food drive.

UpKeep Social Impact Club’s Contribution

To provide support during this critical time, UpKeep’s Social Impact Club came together to purchase canned items and deliver them to LA Mission. Within one week, our network and company were able to purchase 605 food items! And, our awesome Operations Manager, Heather, and Account Manager, Jason, took time out of their busy schedules to deliver the huge batches of cans!
