GBTA Convention 2014 is officially underway in Los Angeles! Starting on Saturday with Convention Kick-Start, attendees had the chance to choose from an array of offerings including educational opportunities, workshops, networking events and more.
As part of the Kick-Start events, more than 40 volunteers joined together for the annual GBTA Cares Service Project. This year GBTA partnered with Clean The World, a national non-profit organization working to distribute donated hygiene products to impoverished people to prevent hygiene-related illnesses.
Volunteers helped pack each kit with bar soap, bottled shampoo and conditioner, bottled lotion, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a disposable razor, a wash cloth and an inspirational note card. When all was said and done, the volunteers assembled 2,112 kits that will go to those in need including domestic homeless shelters.
Volunteers enjoyed the opportunity to kick-start their Convention experience with a tangible, hands-on charitable opportunity.
