ABC7 Los Angeles, the most-watched television station in Los Angeles, has joined forces with local muralists to create wearable pieces of art. The art is available on t-shirts and is sold online at ABC7’s brand new apparel shop.
The campaign will raise money for ABC7’s Feed SoCal Campaign, the station’s effort to eliminate food insecurities through donations.
The shirts will cost between $24.95 and $28.50, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the following Southern California food banks: Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino and FOOD Share and Ventura County’s Food Bank.
Corie Mattie, the first featured artist in this series, said, “It’s really important for people to give back to the community; and I think, with art, you can really portray messages that speak to people.”
Mattie’s shirt is available now. Other artists include Jeremy Novy, whose shirt is available Sept. 2, Kar_Part, whose shirt is available Sept. 9 and Ruben Rojas, whose shirt is available Sept. 16.
ABC7 encourages residents to tune into newscasts every Friday at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. for stories about the need for donations. You can also donate to the food bank of your choice by clicking right here.
