On Sunday, May 3 you will be proud to know that the Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center (BHERC) under our “Operation Love) campaign will mount its third effort of support for the homeless during the COVID – 19 Pandemic. We are committed to narrow the gap services that this virus has expanded in ability for our most beloved and time-honored institutions that serve the homeless has created. The impact on our food pantries and shelters are beyond measure and they need our help!
Here is what BHERC “Operation Love” has done so far:

- April 26th Delivered 500 Essential Hygiene packets, lunches and water to three homeless encampments in Los Angeles. Each packet contained gloves, hand sanitizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, face masks, lip chap and snacks.
On this Sunday, May 3rd, BHERC will mount another drive for the homeless and we need your help. Will you please consider a donation of any or all the following personal hygiene items for the homeless?
- Toilet Paper
- Face Mask
- Hand Sanitizer
Volunteers will be on hand from 1:00PM to 4:00PM to receive packaged products Carside at 1253 Longwood Avenue, Los Angeles, California.
The COVID – 19 pandemic has decimated our food pantries and organizations that provide services to the homeless and underserved Angelenos. BHERC “Operation Love” is committed to continue to support and broaden its campaign to enlist the support of others. “We have so much work to do and it will require a focused effort to address the impact that COVID-19 is having and will continue to have on our community. Not to mention the current crisis we see around homelessness, unemployment and more. This pandemic has shined a spotlight on just how much work we have to do to help our homeless Angelenos ”
BHERC follows City/State and CDC guidelines and thanks our host of volunteers including the National Black Nurses Association and our supporters the Los Angeles Sentinel, the Barbershop Health Outreach Program Dr. Bill Releford, Founder, Mothers in Action, Tracy Mitchell, President and Larry Chatman, Production Coordinator, Record One Studio.
So, please join us this Sunday, May 3rd, as we continue our effort to narrow the gap and provide vital services for the homeless by making this meaningful contribution personal hygiene items for the residents to the Union Rescue Mission. They are excellent stewards of the resources they receive and worthy of our trust. Plan to just drive by and we will be there to greet you masks on and car side!
“Now more than ever we need to practice more love, kindness and appreciation. That’s why we started Operation Love.”
