SAFE PLACE FOR YOUTH

MISSION PROJECT
 
This January, BPC is partnering with Safe Place for Youth to provide unhoused youth (ages 12-25) here in our community with much needed materials. We will be collecting New Men’s and Women’s Underwear and New Warm Blankets. You can bring donations to the church any time we are open in the month of January or you can order online to have your donations sent to the church (BPC SPY Drive 12000 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049).
 
Thank you for your generosity this season in helping vulnerable youth in our community.
