While LA County remains under shelter in place orders, it’s really inspiring to see how people living in Agua Dulce are coming together to support one another. People are reaching out to friends and family members, offering help and support in so many ways, both simple and profound. One group spearheading the effort is the Agua Dulce Women’s Club. The club was founded in 1948 and has been a powerhouse in the community. They have organized community events, including an annual holiday bazaar, and sponsored scholarships.
Since the coronavirus crisis hit, the ADWC has been offering help to community members who need it. They’ve also organized Acton and Agua Dulce property owners who are able to volunteer. On Saturday, April 25th, the club put on a drive up car wash. The car-washing crew donned masks and gloves and got to work scrubbing cars and trucks. Drivers didn’t even need to leave their vehicles, in order to maintain social distancing. The money raised has been used to fund the club’s charitable work.
On Saturday, May 2nd, the ADWC offered a pop-up food pantry for everyone living in Agua Dulce and the surrounding communities. Anyone who came received a box of non-perishable food to fend off food insecurity.
Agua Dulce Property Owners Donate Blood to the Red Cross
This week, on Thursday, May 7th, the club will be hosting a blood drive with the Red Cross. In order to maintain social distancing, you can schedule an appointment. Blood donations have been way down in the past few weeks, and the need is great. You can learn more about how to download the app and set up a time to donate. Check out the Agua Dulce Women’s Club Facebook page for links to the Agua Dulce team page.
Anyone who would like to volunteer to assist with shelter in place support should visit the ADWC website. Those looking for support should also visit to find contact information. We’re in this together!
