Project Have a Heart
Over Valentine's Day 2011, Lu Parker Project launched the "Have a heart. Donate a Bed" fundraising campaign to benefit the dogs at the South L.A. Animal Services Shelter. During the campaign, donors donated the cost of a Kuranda bed and in turn, received a special bouquet for a loved one. The campaign was hugely successful--LPP raised enough money to purchase 144 water-resistant, elevated, shelter-approved beds!
On April 2, 2011, LPP teamed up with over 70 volunteers and local teenagers from the Bresee Foundation to assemble those beds in a space donated by SONY studios and Happy Madison productions. Once all beds were assembled, North Star Moving Corporation transported them to the South L.A. Animal Services Shelter, where they were placed into each kennel. Thanks to the generosity of hundreds,
each dog at South LA now has a wonderful place to sleep.
