No More Poverty and its co-founders, Michael Omidi, M.D. and Julian Omidi, are organizing a blanket drive to benefit the people experiencing homeless in Los Angeles.
“This is an awesome, tangible opportunity to really make a difference in the lives of people in our own community who are struggling,” says Julian Omidi, co-founder of No More Poverty. “This is a cooperative effort for No More Poverty, and we are thrilled to join with these charitable organizations with a heart to provide warmth and comfort to those in need.”
No More Poverty will join with volunteers to distribute donated blankets at one of the oldest and well-established organizations serving Skid Row in Los Angeles.
The Union Rescue Mission (http://www.urm.org) has served men, women, and children experiencing homelessness through a collection of comprehensive emergency and long-term services since 1891.
No More Poverty (http://www.nmp.org) is a not-for-profit charity organization (with a pending 501(c)3 application) founded by brothers Michael Omidi, M.D. and Julian Omidi. The organization seeks to end poverty at home and abroad by supporting the efforts of like-minded charities and agencies. Current efforts are focused on increasing awareness of and donations to charities already doing great work to address poverty and its staggering effects throughout the world. The plan is to expand our activities to include fostering business development and job creation in disenfranchised areas.
