People Helping People in Solvang

We're headed to Southern California this weekend for a couple of shows that focus on songs and their writers. We love those. There's nothing like hearing songs straight from the heart of the writer, its always inspiring to us and to the audience.

We'll be in North Hollywood on Saturday night for Acoustic Los Angeles Live! at Hallenbeck's General Store and in Solvang on Sunday for Songwriters at Play, at the Carivintas Winery Tasting Room.

We love the Santa Ynez Valley, and Solvang is such a quaint town. Our friends have told us we have to try the aebleskiver. But we also wondered what's going on in the Solvang Community? Who are the people there who are changing the world through love?

Here's what we found:

Thriftstore_03 People Helping People was founded in 1992 by several local citizens and
government officials who saw the need for a local non-profit
organization to supply emergency and Short-term social services. They also assist individuals and
families extricate themselves from a cycle of poverty and empower individuals and
families to become self-sufficient. People Helping People began its
service to the Valley in 1992 from donated office space in the Veteran's
Memorial Hall in Solvang.

PHP operates a Thrift Store in Solvang, we're thinking we'll stop by. After the aebleskiver.
