They are families with children who have nowhere to go.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi, through their charity No More Poverty (nmp.org) are the new supporters of Under the Bridges & On the Streets and their programs to serve thehomeless people throughout the Los Angeles area. Under the Bridges is a direct service organization of volunteers with an awareness of the heart who provide food and clothing to those in need. A special aspect of this program is that help is delivered directly where they live -- in alleys, empty lots, wherever the homeless gather and live.
“They are families with children who have nowhere to go. People who have fallen through the cracks of society and are in dire need. These are the homeless who are fed and clothed every month by Under the Bridges,” says Julian Omidi, co-founder of No More Poverty. “We want to give back to the community by supporting Under the Bridges.”
ABOUT Under the Bridges & On the Streets
Under the Bridges & On the Streets is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit hands-on service organization that serves homeless people throughout the county of Los Angeles. Established in 1993, it is dedicated to serving those who are unable to utilize or access shelters and soup kitchens. Program volunteers physically take food to the homeless where they live and congregate – on the streets, under bridges, and in camps. When available, the organization also distributes clothes, shoes, blankets and toiletries to those in need. Program volunteers believe in the dignity of the individual and strive to enhance the lives of those they serve as well as those who serve. More information about Under the Bridges is at:
