On Friday, December 24th, Jennifer Love Hewitt showed her holiday spirit by hosting The Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve event — an annual affair that provides foods, gifts, and Christmas entertainment for less fortunate individuals in Los Angles.
“Anyone would be moved by the kids on Skid Row meeting Santa and receiving gifts on Christmas Eve,” said Hewitt. “I have been privileged to serve at the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Homeless Outreach for more than 10 years, and always go home impressed by how joyful and respectful it is. Thanks to everyone who makes it possible by supporting the Mission.”
A slew of stars came out to support the event and lend a hand, including Alyssa Milano, Stephanie Pratt, Boo Boo Stewart, Zachary Levi and Kate Linder. What’s more, local musicians donated their time and talents to help entertain the crowd.
Toyota graciously sponsored the event with a $50,000 donation that helped feed 3,000 hungry men and women.
“We are very grateful to Toyota for supporting the work of the Los Angeles Mission,” said Herbert L. Smith, President of the Mission. “Serving the homeless effectively with excellent programs and high impact assistance takes the support of lots of people in the Los Angeles area, from corporations like Toyota, to individual donors who make regular contributions. Success of the Los Angeles Mission is largely due to the partnerships and generosity of many involved organizations and individuals.”
We’re always happy to hear when Hollywood hotshots come out to support a great cause and get involved in their community. We’re sure that everyone who attended the event had a great time.
