ISACA chapters and staff are exemplifying our purpose, promise, and values with a day of service around the world. Not only can we help individuals realize the positive potential of technology, but together, we can help people realize the positive potential of ISACA’s global society.
On October 7, 2023 we welcome you to join the ISACA community as we participate in the fifth annual worldwide day of volunteerism. ISACA members, staff and other engaged community members around the world will make a difference in their communities through community service within this 24-hour period, all while using a live social media feed and #ISACACommunITyDay to track local volunteer projects.
The Los Angeles Chapter is hosting three community service events. We are excited to invite you to sign up for one or more events using the volunteer sign-up tool, Helper Helper. Attendance is tracked using this user-friendly tool so ISACA can track the larger impact we are making around the globe. Those participating in the in-person event will receive an ISACA CommunITy Day t-shirt (size is entered when creating a new Helper Helper account).Visit ISACA CommunITy Day page for more information.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to co-lead one of the events, please contact the Community Service Committee.

SUPPORTING LOCAL YOUTH

The LA chapter will help offset costs and provide volunteers to support the event!|

CARE PACKAGES FOR THE TROOPS
|For The Troops sends care packages to military personnel throughout the world to let them know we thank them for their service. Many do not have basic items out in the field, such as toothbrush and paste. Those receiving packages share with others, where everyone in an area receives small items of gratitude. Help package items in boxes to send to our deployed troops in the world. We will meet onsite at the non-profit’s HQ to pack care boxes for our troops stationed and working outside of the United States. These care boxes consist of basic items that we take for granted that are not always readily available for troops stationed outside of the US.|
|For those attending in-person, please bring a box of items, preferably travel-sized, based on the troops’ wish list here:|
