My good friend Lisa Kodimer is a true visionary. She has so many great ideas, they’re coming out of her eyeballs. Most of her ideas revolve around helping others. And she has an amazing network of friends and volunteers who help turn her ideas into action.
Her latest project is a local snack drive for Los Angeles area Covid-19 Front Line Workers. Her goal: to provide thousands of snacks every week to the doctors, nurses and support staffs of local area hospitals, and to let them know they are appreciated for their work keeping people healthy during this pandemic.
Lisa and the charity she founded, Connecting a Caring Community, are providing thousands of bags of chips, cookies, water bottles and other snacks to several local hospitals every week. Some of the hospitals receiving snacks include West Hills Hospital, Valley Presbyterian, Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente – Panorama City, Kaiser Permanente – Woodland Hills, Olive View UCLA Medical Center, Malibu Urgent Care, and Malibu Medical Group. In total, 10 hospitals are receiving snacks under CCC’s Goodies to Go “Snacks For Your Belly Love For Your Soul” Program which also provides snacks to sick children currently seeking treatment in local area hospitals.
But if that wasn’t enough, Lisa and her charity organized special gifts for National Nurses Day: she teamed with Whitney Howard Designs and I.C.O.N. Salon in Woodland Hills to provide cookies, a blessing ring, and salon products to 5,000 nurses at West Hills Hospital, and then teamed with Panera Bread Cafes of Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties to bring fresh baked goodies to the West Hills staff the following week.
Invitation Maven provided all of the signage for these events. It is a relatively small contribution, but it’s one we’re very proud to be a part of.
Lisa and Connecting a Caring Community even received some positive press in the Patch about her local snack drive for Los Angeles area Covid-19 Front Line Workers.
This kind of work is a real labor of love. Lisa does it because of the joy it brings to others. If you would like to make a donation toward the Covid-19 snack project, not only would Lisa be appreciative, but so would the thousands of Los Angeles area Covid-19 frontline workers.
