Getting down with the Garcettis at the Getty House Holiday Fair

We were thrilled to be included in Engage LA: The Gift of Giving-- a holiday fair hosted by Mayor Garcetti and the Getty House Board of Directors.

Engage LA featured products made by various LA based social enterprises that give opportunities to Angelenos touched by homelessness, domestic violence, and other challenges.

Our team members and artisans had great success selling our hand crafted goods along-side many other inspiring organizations whose work we love, such as; MADE by DWCSkid Row Coffee, LA LGBT Center, Homeboy Industries, The People Concern, Chrysalis and many more.

Thank you to the Getty House for including us in this fantastic pop up holiday fair and to all the wonderful attendees who supported our program.

Dear Friends and Supporters of Would Works,

Winding down this year, we express deep gratitude for your support and engagement with Would Works. 2023 began expansively: WW Community Builders Program Artisans and our team took a field trip to the snow-covered Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains north of the city. Shirley is the Artisan Lead at Would Works and was born and raised in LA. She’s now in her mid-60’s, yet she’s never been up to the Angeles Forest. Our city is surrounded by abundant landscapes, but many residents who face barriers to employment also lack access to experiences in nature. This forest visit reflects the growth trajectory of Would Works, which we illuminate here.
