The Church in Ocean Park, in conjunction with the L.A. Peace Society, will host a community give-away on March 22 from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the church, 235 Hill St.

This event is based upon a Native American ceremony called “Giveaway” and its purpose is to create balance in the community.

Residents are asked to bring items that they no longer use or have use for such as small appliances, picture frames, toys, clothing, electronics, musical instruments, books or home decor.

The idea is that everyone walks away with at least one “gift” of his or her own choosing (something someone else brought to the event) whether or not they brought anything. Participants do not have to give in order to receive. When the event is complete, items that are not taken away will be donated to a charitable organization. Organizers said participants should come prepared to take stuff home in their own boxes and bags that were used to carry items to the event.

Item drop-off will be from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the playground area (fenced-in area adjacent to the church).
