“Doris Presley exemplifies how we can all make a difference and help others along the way.” ~ Commendation from Mayor of West Hollywood

Doris Presley –  For the past 25+ years, Doris has been volunteering her services for various feeding and relief organizations throughout the Los Angeles area: MATC – Marine Therapeutic Center, an operation which specializes in special needs clients, Project Angel Food, an AIDS relief organization, and Hope for the Homeless Youth, an organization dedicated to “Reaching The Hurting Youth of The Inner City”, and GWHFC – Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition, to name a few.

Even at age 87, there’s no slowing down for Doris, as she and Jerry currently have established Doris Cares, in order to continue feeding needy families, homeless, single moms and at-risk teens, all across Los Angeles.

2013 – Doris Presley volunteered for Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition for 25 years as a chef and server where she received a commendation from the Mayor of West Hollywood “for her selfless contributions and her tireless efforts to the GWHFC and helping those most in need.”

2014 – Doris Presley received the 20th Annual Appreciation Employee of the Year award at Marine Therapeutic Center. MATC specializes in special needs clients and Doris Presley, as founder of DORIS CARES, donated food to the center on a daily basis and as their chef, taught clients kitchen skills in order to re-enter their community.

2017 – At “The Pearls & Lace Awards Luncheon”, held May 13, at the Estelle Van Meter Center in South L.A., Doris Presley, as founder of DORIS CARES, was among twelve women being honored who’ve made an impact on their community.

2017 – Doris Presley, as founder of DORIS CARES, was the recipient of the Walmart Community Playmakers Program for her tireless efforts in the community and her selfless contributions to improving lives.

Jerry Chan –  “It has always been my belief to expand and share food to all who are hungry.” Over fifteen years ago, Jerry worked for the studios and found enormous amounts of food being wasted daily.  He took this left over food and instead of throwing it away, he drove it to Hollywood Blvd. and fed homeless kids out of his car.  There’s been no turning back and for the past fifteen + years, Jerry has been chauffeuring food between donors and recipients.  He works, tirelessly, with only one goal in mind…how many more donors can I get on board for Doris and how many more people can we feed today?  Jerry is a big man with an even bigger heart.
