Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 26, 2012
Under the Bridges & On the Streets are now able to go a little farther in their mission to feed the homeless, thanks to support from Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi and their non-profit organization No More Poverty (nmp.org). Under the Bridges provides food and clothing to those in need throughout Los Angeles county. Actually “taking it to the streets”, program volunteers deliver aid where the homeless gather -- in alleys, empty lots, under bridges, wherever.
“After nearly 20 years of operation, Under the Bridges continues to serve meals to the homeless,” says John Shinavier, Executive Director of Under the Bridges & On the Streets. “We are very grateful for the donation from the Omidi brothers and No More Poverty and those like them who look with compassion on those in need … and respond with grace and generosity.”
