We want to thank Jim & Kris Sanders (Reel Ideas Media Production) and everyone at Jericho Road Pasadena for making this video possible.


We just had a new Friends In Deed PSA created by our friends at Pasadena Media.  Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater talks about the homeless in our community and the programs we have here at Friends In Deed. Give it a look.  Thank you, Pasadena Media.


Power of One Show – Conversation with Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater

Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater sat down with Power of One host, Brian Biery, to discuss Friends In Deed, homelessness, community impact, and how we can work together in helping those with greater need in our community.


44th Annual Pasadena Mayor’s Interfaith Prayer Breakfast held on Thursday, May 4, 2017. Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater was the emcee for the event and John E. Kobara, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, California Community Foundation, gave the keynote address.  More than 570 people came together for a morning of fellowship and community.


With a grant we received from the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF) last year, we were able to purchase a new freezer for our Food Pantry. Through the Nancy Nash Beckham Endowment for Hunger, started by her daughters, Barbara Beckham & Patti Beckham Healy, in honor of Nancy’s dedication to service and community, PCF is able to provide grants to organizations like Friends In Deed.  Please take a few minutes and watch the video below


CVUMC “Empty Bowls: Hope Not Hunger” Event – On Oct. 22, 2017, Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church held their annual Empty Bowls event.  For a donation of $20 (for adults) and/or $15 (for children 12 & under), guests chose a beautifully, handcrafted bowl, got it filled with soup, enjoyed a great evening, and then took the bowl home with them.  Proceeds from this wonderful event went to benefit Friends In Deed, World Service Fund, and Bailey Human Care Center at Tujunga UMC.  Erin Hambarsumian, a Girl Scout from CVUMC, chose to make Empty Bowls her class project, and produced a video about the evening.  Below is her video.
