With the help of our generous corporate leaders, we are building a better Los Angeles. Every week, we highlight our top corporate leaders and salute them for helping us create pathways out of poverty. United Way of Greater Los Angeles extends a huge thanks to these leaders and corporations working with us to permanently break the cycle of poverty for our most vulnerable neighbors: families, children, veterans and the homeless.
Company: HomeWalk 2013!
Thank you to all of our participants, community partners, and corporate teams & sponsors for making HomeWalk 2013 a success!
Kobe Bryant, Honorary HomeWalk Chair, believes that “everyone deserves a home”, but unfortunately there are still over 58,000 people living in Los Angeles that don’t have a place to call home. The United Way HomeWalk, an annual 5K walk/run, brings much needed awareness and support to help our fellow Angelenos get the help that they need to find permanent supportive housing.
This year’s HomeWalk took place on Saturday, November 23, and thanks to our friends in the community, in the business world, and our civic leaders, HomeWalk 2013 had the best turnout that we have ever seen! Together, we are making a difference in our communities and we will eradicate the root causes of chronic homelessness so that we can all have a place to call home.

On November 20, Eaton Aerospace held a fantastic lunch event for their employees in Los Angeles, close to their Glendale facility. The BBQ “fun-raiser” had about 200 employees in attendance where they enjoyed hot dogs and prizes. John Mabritto from the United Way also shared with them about the impact that Eaton and their employees are making in the community.
Thank you to everyone at Eaton Aerospace for a fantastic event and for your continued partnership with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles and for your support in helping to improve lives in Los Angeles!
