The Flair Cares Spring Food Drive continues through May 31, 2017. All five Flair locations, Santa Monica, Valencia, Studio City, Burbank, and Redondo Beach, are collecting non-perishable food items. We deliver the food weekly to nonprofits in our communities we serve. Here are two of the organizations we support.
North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry
Founded in 1983 by 10 local religious congregations, the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry addresses the challenge of hunger in our communities. The all-volunteer organization operates as part of the San Fernando Valley Interfaith Council, Inc.
The North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry distributes food twice a week, 52 weeks a year to anyone in need. The organization receives food donations from local churches, individuals, schools, and community organizations like Flair Cleaners.
Burbank Temporary Aid Center
In 1974, the Ministerial Association and the Burbank Coordinating Council recognized the need for a centralized source of services for the less fortunate in the community. The Burbank Temporary Aid Center addresses these needs. The center provides the poor, working poor, low-income seniors, and homeless of the community with basic services they need to live with dignity. Additionally, it serves individuals in times of emergency and disaster.
As a conduit between the generous donors of the community, foundations, and government resources, Burbank Temporary Aid Center’s 75 volunteers provide clients with food, utility assistance, transportation assistance, emergency shelter, medical assistance, and holiday outreach.
In 2006, after an 18-month building effort, Burbank Temporary Aid Center proudly unveiled its new 5,500 sq. ft. facility. It includes a modernized food pantry, client laundry and shower facilities, private interview rooms and other features important to accomplishing their mission.
