Jewish Los Angeles Special Needs Trust held our first salon event this month to introduce our pooled special needs trust! The aim was to build up support so we can accomplish our three primary goals for people with disabilities: Protecting Benefits, Promoting Independence and Providing Peace of Mind.
Hosted by Board Member Stanley Kandel and his wife Charlotte, the event was very successful in reaching out to community leaders and raising needed funds, helping us move closer to our public launch. Pictures from the event can be seen below.
Until our next salon event, here are three ways you can help out:
1. Referrals - We are looking for more families who would be interested in learning about and signing up for the trust and appreciate any family or professional connections you are able to make. Please send names and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Volunteers/Donated Goods - We have many ways that volunteers can help us with the launch of the trust and appreciate any time and expertise you are able to give. We are currently seeking used laptops in good condition and other office equipment.
3. Financial Support - We need your help to get us to our launch date! Please make your check out to "Bet Tzedek" with "JLA Trust" in the memo line and mail to: 6230 Wilshire Blvd #1178, Los Angeles, CA 90048. Any and all amounts are greatly appreciated.
