Mission:

Volunteering is easy when you… HIKE IT UP! Our organization hosts fun family-friendly monthly service events, such as neighborhood beautifications/clean up, food collection and cooking days at area missions and homeless shelters. Additionally, as a way to raise awareness and to collect much-needed items such as food, blankets, baby diapers, backpacks and school supplies for the less fortunate, Hike It Up arranges guided group hikes throughout Hollywood Hills and Santa Monica Parks and Mountains Reserves. We have decided that good will is contagious. We have also learned that volunteering is fun and fulfilling when we do it together! It is up to us to be the change we want to see...and the time is now.

Hike It Up is one of the most effective local Southeast Valley non-profits with proceeds going to relevant and needy children and organizations that Hike cares deeply about. Highly legit and making a difference. Haig is a prince.

This is one of the best non profits that works to help homeless and low-income youth in Southern CA. Support their mission because the demand is far greater than the supply. O.N.E. Percent Campaign supports HIKE IT UP!

We helped prep, cook and serve breakfast today at a battered women's homeless shelter and it was such a rewarding experience! The women loved that we showed up to do this event and they love Hike It Up for always coming back to cook wonderful meals for them! This was such an awesome thing to be a part of and I thank Hike It Up SO much for being such a great example and for being so committed to giving back to the community! I love this organization and I LOVE being able to help out and lend a hand! Thanks Hike It Up!! xx

I joined Hike it Up this past weekend to make breakfast for 100 disabled individuals housed with Valley Village. This was well organized, everyone was super nice and the event was lots of fun. It was a great way to start off my weekend and I can't wait to join the crew on more volunteer excursions.
