All across America families are feeling the effects of our current economic state. Unfortunately many of those feeling the effects most are young children. That’s why SoCal HeARTS has teamed with The High Desert Foster Families Association and Stepping Stone Foster Families of Los Angeles to throw a holiday party for many of these children. This day of fun, food and gifts will be a welcome escape from the everyday struggles that many of these children are facing. Our hope is that each child leaves with a smile on their face, a full belly and a gift that they need AND something they really want!
Three years ago (2011) we partnered with Camp TLC and added a week-long summer camp. During the week our campers are exposed to ART based activities that are no longer offered in the public school system.
Industry professional volunteers lead classes in theater, dance, singing, guitar, percussion, photography and athletics. In a week’s time, lifelong memories and friendships are created and new dreams are discovered.
Our grass roots organization operates solely from the revenue of fundraisers and donations from our loyal supporters. We put every dollar we raise into nurturing these young lives and enriching their experience.
