02 Nov Optomi Orange County Team Spends the Day Volunteering at the Giving Children Hope Non-profit Organization
OC spent their Opt2Give day volunteering at Giving Children Hope – a non-profit organization that works to alleviate poverty both domestically and internationally. We started our day by putting together backpacks which hold a weeks worth of food. They partner with 60 schools in the Orange County and Los Angeles community and distribute 1,200 backpacks weekly to food insecure children and their family. In the afternoon we set up a food market where many of these family will come in person to “shop” for food which happens on Fridays. We handed out food to food insecure families. It was a heartwarming and rewarding day for us. We were so happy to meet some of the families and see the impact this has for them.
