Westside Food Bank
A non-profit corporation founded in 1981, which provides food to social service agencies on the Westside of Los Angeles County. Their food often enables low-income people to stay in their homes, deterring the problem of homelessness, because it saves them from having to make the agonizing choice between paying for rent or food when they can’t afford both. We have organized and completed a yearly food drive collecting thousands of pounds of food from local residents. It’s been wildly successful and rewarding to see the results of the community pitching in to help out.
In 2009, in the midst of the great recession, we realized that no matter how bad the economy is in the US, we are more blessed than the majority of people around the world. It was at this time that we decided to sponsor two girls – one in Mali and another in Cambodia. Every year, we exchange letters and photos so we can share how we’ve grown and thrived and recognize how we are all connected.

Mark’s hero and older brother, was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 37 and passed away at 45. He was lucky enough to live an almost full life. Children are diagnosed with similar conditions every day. St Jude takes them in, free of cost, and treats life-threatening diseases. Our empathy and support are with these children and their families at St Jude.
Ace of Hearts
Kari Whitman founded the non-profit Ace of Hearts in 2001 after her American Bulldog “Ace” passed away. She had rescued Ace from death row at a shelter in 1990. When he died, she channeled her grief and frustration into trying to save other shelter dogs like Ace and finding them loving homes. Ace of Hearts rescues as many dogs from death row, get them medical care and rehab to ensure they’ll be successfully adopted.
