San Gabriel River Clean Up

On January 27th, 2018, Modern Enlightenment joined the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation as well as a couple of other organizations to clean up the San Gabriel River at the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area. Several volunteers came out and participated as we picked up a lot of trash including giant tires, shopping carts, clothes, etc. Thank you to the directors and volunteers that participated and special thanks to LA County Parks and Rec. for providing all the equipment, food, and water! Modern Enlightenment strives to cultivate leadership through humanistic philanthropy and this event shows how well we work together for the greater good and the environment! Coming up next, a tree planting event at Whittier Narrows Park on February 18, 2018. See our event page for details!

Operation Feed The Homeless

Operation Feed The Homeless – January 7th, 2018

Four years ago, Operation: Feed the Homeless was founded on one simple idea–to pass out hamburgers to the homeless. This year, it evolved into a full scale operation. With the help of 55 volunteers, we served and donated 125 sleeping bags, 480 rolls of toilet paper, 200 beanies, 200 pairs of gloves, 500 pairs of socks, 100 sweat shirts, 100 sweat pants, 150 blankets, 34 bags of old clothing and other daily necessities. We also served 800 portions of hot meals consisting hot wings, chow mien, fried rice, orange chicken, beef broccoli and egg rolls. We are beyond excited and humble of the growth, however, it cannot be done without your support. Thank you so much to all the donors and volunteers for their time and resources. Thank you to our amazing directors, Tammy Ly and Jimmy Nguyen, for their help in making this event possible. We are truly grateful for all your help and support. Thank you so much for believing in our mission. We can only imagine how awesome the future will be 🙂

Beach Clean Up / Bonfire

On September 30th, 2017, Modern Enlightenment went out to Bolsa Chica State Beach and did a clean up around Tower 17. Almost 30 volunteers came out and participated. Ice breaker games were conducted and organized by the Directors to make sure everyone knew each other and was comfortable. Freshly grilled food were prepared for the volunteers to make sure everyone was fed. We ended the night with a bonfire and eating s’mores.

We like to give special thanks to all the Directors that worked together to make this event not only possible but also successful as well. We also like send a special shout out to the Montebello Youth Leadership Club for coming out and support Modern Enlightenment. We look forward to working with everyone again soon!
