The organization completes over 2.2 million hours of volunteer work each year. Volunteer Los Angeles focuses on using innovation and collaboration create a difference in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and several charity leaders attended the event.

Other volunteers assisted with service projects at the Shadow Hills Riding Center, where veterans use equine therapy to relieve Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and physical issues.
