We adore our volunteers! We offer a unique experience to give back by providing opportunities in office administration, client services and assistance with our fundraising events. We provide corporate partner volunteers with the opportunity to work at our Vance North Necessities of Life food pantry program (typically 2 – 4 hours). Our warehouse is located in North Hollywood and we have several distribution sites throughout Los Angeles County. Additionally, our signature event – AIDS Walk Los Angeles – provides opportunities for thousands of volunteers during the months of August, September and October.
