The purpose of our annual Day At The Beach "Adopt a Child for One Day" is to bring the community together through an easy and memorable event that allows adults to mentor, give back and share time and hope with at-risk children living in our nearby communities (cities include South Central Los Angeles, Compton, Watts and Long Beach).
Our goal is to give positive experiences to both the child and the volunteer by uniting over 600 people: 300 community volunteers share a day filled with one-on-one love, hope and laughter with over 300 at-risk children ages 5 to 12 from local shelters, schools and the Department of Child and Family Services.
We provide the at-risk children and mentors with all the needed items for this day of fun, including t-shirts, boogie boards, backpacks with school items, food, drinks, toys and games, as well as access to chair massages, face painting, surf lessons, make-up lessons, and relay races.
Day at the Beach 2016 was held on July 30th. Please join our mailing list to stay in touch and learn about other volunteer opportunities.
Here is an idea of how your dollars help an at-risk child:
A $25 donation supplies 1 Boogie Board and 1 Child's Tshirt
A $50 donation supplies 1 Child with Food and Water
A $100 donation sponsors 1 Child for the entire day
Anything you can give is much appreciated (and tax deductible!).
