Philanthropy Matters, Give Back. 

Each month, the Neptunian Woman’s Club select an organization to support at our monthly luncheons by hosting an in-kind fundraiser, as well as a monetary donation.

This November, the ladies of the NWC have selected The Bob Hope USO at LAX and Project: NEEDS.

Our Monthly Monetary Donation Recipient

Project: NEEDS

Project: NEEDS is our November monetary donation recipient of $500 for their food pantry. This is an outreach program of St. Paul’s in Redondo Beach. Project: NEEDS offers two main services to those in need in our community. Every Tuesday evening a hot meal is available to anyone who is hungry. They also have a food pantry (on the first and third  Thursday) that distributes groceries to families and homeless people.

 

Currently they serve an average of 85 meals every Tuesday and approximately 400 families per month benefit from their food pantry. Volunteers are needed to help serve meals a few times a month in Redondo Beach.
