Local Food Banking
I helped pack 1220 boxes of food for Thanksgiving yesterday. The event was at the Los Angeles arboretum and the food goes to local families through a local charity - Foothills Unity Center. The food will be distributed next week. I went with some Obama supporters, we have done it a few times before and decided to keep doing it as part of Obama's service. Its a lot of fun. The number of boxes needed this year is a lot more than last, last year we only did ~800.
Last night I went to the taping of CNN's heroes at the Kodak theatre. I got a complimentary ticket thanks to 'People Assisting the Homeless - PATH'. It was a great event, I enjoyed seeing all the stars (John Legend played!). The show will be airing next Thursday at 9pm on CNN.
