Since becoming established in 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles' workforce has constructed or renovated more than 350 homes for low-income families throughout 112 cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The organization relies largely on volunteer labor and donations of building materials, home decor, furniture, and appliances, which are used in building projects or sold at the ReStore. These sales not only help raise funds for building projects, but have also helped save more than five million pounds of reusable materials from ending up in local landfills.
Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers drizzle albion strawberries and daisy pineapples in a trio of chocolate flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to plop their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch to the edible gifts. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 chocolate-dipped morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.
