Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple

During these uncertain times, the Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple is working in a collaborative effort to strengthen its community outreach activities.

In an effort to support our Keiro members (age 80 and over), the temple organizations — including the Buddhist Women’s Association, Girl Scout Troop 5325, Marina Cub Scout Pack 79, the Sangha Initiative, Senior Outreach, Adult Buddhist Association, Jr. YBA and Dharma School — have come together to offer Senior Dana Deliveries during this pandemic.

Three sets of deliveries have been made to date, with the most recent delivery of 136 bags. Deliveries also went out to the Venice Sangha members over the age of 70.

The delivery bags included practical items such as hand sanitizer, face masks and toilet paper, as well as food items such as fresh fruit, senbei, and snacks donated
