Word Camp Sends T-Shirts to Charity Volunteers and Homeless
Los Angeles Word Camp 2018 send a gift of brand new Word Press T-Shirts in various sizes to the great folks at the West Hollywood Food Coalition, which operates out of the Salvation Army kitchen on Hollywood Boulevard. The volunteers and homeless folks were thrilled to get new colorful shirts. The Coalition feeds 100 to 200 folks each week night.
How did this come about? Uncle Paulie, webmaster of GypsyCool.com and his partner Julie Webster went to Word Camp 2018 to learn some of the latest improvements in the world of Word Press. This took place on the campus of Cal State College in East L.A. on September 22-23, 2018. When the event was over Julie spotted a box of brand new T-Shirts that weren’t given out to the attendees, so she asked the organizers of the event tor the shirts to give to our friends at the West Hollywood Food Coalition and the Salvation Army in Hollywood. Uncle Paulie collects food from local markets and delivers to the Coalition to help feed those in need of a good hot meal. “We can’t do enough to help the great folks there,” he said. “They are working every day of the week to prepare good meals for those who need it, it’s on the scale of feeding an Army Company.”
The good people of Word Camp where more than happy to oblige Julie’s request and you can see by some of the smiling folks in the photo, it was a happy moment.
Getting Trader Joe’s Food Donation to the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition in Hollywood – Uncle Paulie Has Been Delivering Truck Loads for 5 Years
For the last 5 years Gypsy Cool’s Uncle Paulie has been taking van loads of food to the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition operating out of the Salvation Army Kitchen in Hollywood. They feed up to 200 people every night Monday through Friday. On weekends they are back at the corner of Romain and Sycamore in Hollywood around 5pm serving dinner.. Paulie makes the long trek from the West Valley at least once a week to deliver much-needed food to Hollywood’s Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition at the Salvation Army. “Being retired I love helping to feed people who are hungry and need food. We also distribute food directly almost every night of the week, and help many other groups grappling with the suffering of seniors, homeless folks, students, and other poor folks who need some extra help and love,” said Paulie. The volunteer delivery crew, including Uncle Paulie, Bob, Wendy, Chuck, Chris, Julie, Judith, John, Judy, Kathleen and others, are all from the charity Earth Harmony Foundation.
Volunteers sort through the donations from Trader Joe’s Market in Sherman Oaks. Chef Joe will use this food with other donations and some purchased food to make enough meals to feed 100 to 200 folks per night. A great crew of volunteers help to sort, prepare, cook, and serve the meals. Help is always needed, show up in the afternoon to the Salvation Army on Hollywood Blvd. (near Gower).

Get in the line that forms. It gets dark early so bring a flashlight. There are no tables or chairs allowed, per the City of Los Angeles, who always has plenty of cops around to watch your every move. You will have to sit on a curb or sidewalk to eat. Clean up after yourself and pick up your trash. Bring some wet wipes with you in your back pack. If you ride your bike, watch it closely. You can park on La Brea I think after 7pm, but watch all the parking signs, many of the side streets have no parking after 6pm without a permit.
