Lakeshore In the Community

Holiday Cheer for Families in Need
Long Beach, California

This holiday season, Lakeshore was thrilled to play Santa’s helper by donating 6,000 new learning toys to Long Beach Day Nursery—a local child care center partnering with Long Beach Unified School District Child Development Centers to host a “Santa’s Workshop Toy Giveaway” for preschoolers in need.

Over 1,200 families received invites to the big event, where parents were able to pick up some great toys and make the season a little brighter for their little ones! Staffed by over 50 hardworking and cheerful volunteers, the giveaway was held December 17, 18 and 22 at the LBUSD Child Development Center offices in nearby Lakewood.

A real collaborative effort, other participating organizations included Head Start, the Long Beach Early Childhood Committee, Young Horizons, Comprehensive Child Development, YMCA, Un Mundo de Amigos, Long Beach Child Care Network, the Children’s Institute, Long Beach Public Library, For the Child, and more.

At Lakeshore, we were delighted to have an opportunity to support the families in our community…and lend Santa a much-needed helping hand!
