Carolyn Hennesy who plays Mrs Chesterfield on Disney Channel’s Jessie came out to volunteer at The Los Angeles Mission’s End of The Year Block Party.
The Los Angeles Mission hosted their End of the End Year Block Party for children who live on Skid Row. Families began lining up in the early hours before the sun came up for a chance to give their kids a day of fun and get free backpacks, health services and a free meal!
Generous companies contributed money or supplies to make the day a success. US Bank Donated $25,000 to support the event and the Mission.
In and Out Burger, King Taco and the LA Mission Kitchen Served 3,500 meals.
Backpack and school supplies were donated by Great Commission Church International of Los Angeles and Jackson-Hewitt.
Volunteers ran carnival style booths, served food and drinks and supervised bounce houses and blow up slides.
Skechers donated about a 1000 pairs of Bobs with the help of Soles4Souls.
Carolyn’s job was to help kids create art and do crafts! She was so sweet and nothing like her character!
Watch for her in a new project with Shane Harper called Platinum the Dance Movie in 2014.
