2 Hands 2 Cans Hosts 4th Annual Night of Growth Gala at THE LINE Hotel Celebrate and raise awareness for a worthy cause

According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, about 50,000 to 60,000 people can be found homeless on any given night in Los 

Angeles County. Empowering at-risk individuals to excel and become self-sufficient by addressing both their immediate and long-term needs through job training, education and career placement, 2 Hands 2 Cans is making a real impact in the lives of others.  
Coming to the realization that nearly 1 in 5 children struggled with hunger, entrepreneur Chris Willard decided to lend a hand. Collecting canned goods from his local neighbors every Friday, he spent weekends sharing food and conversation with the homeless just to give encouragement. However, he eventually found this wasn’t enough – he could do more. Partnering with agencies that could help those through rehabilitation and assist in extended education, Chris created 2 Hands 2 Cans to help the at risk individuals such as homeless, veterans, foster care & juveniles eventually pre-qualify for careers in hotels and restaurants, lifting them out of scarcity. Working together to address immediate needs such as clothing, hunger and transportation, 2 Hands 2 Cans also focuses on the long-term systemic issues of employment and education.
Want to be part of this change? You’re in luck! 2 Hands 2 Can is hosting their 4th Annual Night of Growth Gala at THE LINE Hotel – Los Angeles on Friday, October 13 at 6:00pm! A night to celebrate and raise awareness for a worthy cause, each ticket donation goes towards the cost of their programs and helps 2 Hands 2 Cans continue to serve people in the Los Angeles community in need of help. Watch a fun clip of how we are making a difference here!
