Brighton Hall Youth Set Up an L.A. Community Fridge To Help Area Food-Insecure Population.
The Student Council of Brighton Hall School, a private school in Burbank, used grant funding from Allstate Insurance to set up and stock one of L.A. Community Fridges at a North Hollywood church on Dec. 17.
With tent cities proliferating under a highway overpass they frequently drove by, the students––many of whom are working professional actors and musicians––saw a vast need to help.
For their annual community service project, they purchased a new refrigerator and pantry, painted them and took advantage of an invitation by the pastor of the MCC United Church of Christ in the Valley to lodge them in the parking lot. These refrigerators are now available 24/7 to the homeless and hungry in the area.
“We are proud of our students for their effort to help others in these difficult times,” Student Council advisor Melonie Magruder said.
“The students are finding local donors to keep the fridge and pantry stocked and learning a valuable life lesson. We’re all in this together,” she said.
Anyone is welcome to drop off donations of sealed, packaged foods, personal hygiene items and fresh produce to Brighton Hall’s Community Fridge & Pantry at MCC Church: 5730 Cahuenga Blvd, North Hollywood.
