A couple weeks ago, CHIP members had the opportunity to volunteer on Skid Row at a shelter called the Lamp Community. The event, put on by USC’s The Roots Foundation, was called “Diva Day” and offered a day full of pampering for homeless women living on Skid Row, including free haircuts, manicures, clothing, and makeovers! CHIP members offered blood pressure screenings to all attendees, and we had a productive day with almost 50 women coming to us for check-ups. The Roots Foundation is hoping to have similar events in the near future, so keep a lookout in the next couple months if you would like to attend. Also, if you are interested in joining The Roots Foundation (in addition to volunteering with CHIP), just email email@example.com and ask for an application! I hope to see you at future events!
