Today, on Good Friday, I attended the Los Angeles Mission's annual Easter Meal that feeds 3,000 homeless people, provides Easter baskets with toys for homeless children, and washes the homeless' feet and gives them new shoes. Every year, I assist in this practice of washing of the feet for the homeless, because it's such a simple act and it provides our most vulnerable with a sense of dignity, warmth and belonging after countless cold, lonely nights on the streets.
No matter your creed or your color, I urge you to volunteer in any capacity at a homeless shelter, since the well-being of our community can only be measured by how the least among us is faring. To find out where you can volunteer go to: http://www.volunteerlosangeles.com/
