Thanks to everyone who donated some of their time, energy, and hearts into helping to replenish the donations that were recently destroyed in a fire at the Southwest Community Center (AKA SMEDA, AKA Annie Mae Tripp Community Center)
Bubble Punch collected donations from all over Los Angeles! Special thanks to JapanLA for offering their store as a donation drop off point!
This past Friday, the truckload of donations that were collected were dropped off at the Orange County United Way, which was handling the donations for SMEDA.
Luckily, many other people and local communities opened their hearts to the needy this year, and the center, when I arrived, was filled with donations from all over!
Our pals from Sanrio also got involved in the event when they heard about it, and sent down several boxes full of Hello Kitty toys as donations! Check out below for some quick pictures snapped of the events…..
Thanks again to everyone who donated to the SMEDA center. Happy Holidays indeed! =D
