BENEFITING: The Mar Vista Family Center
I believe that summer camp is an experience every child should have. Unfortunately appropriate resources are not always available for the families and some children languish over summer. Mar Vista Family Center provides summer day camp to low-income families designed to provide children a safe haven to discover new abilities, build self-esteem and develop social skills. The participants are children from high-need neighborhoods that are impacted by violence, crime, poverty, and lack of parental supervision.
For six weeks, economically disadvantaged children ages 6 to 12 years old will participate in a wide range of exciting topics including arts and crafts, dance, sports and team-building games, as well as field trips to educational and cultural venues. In addition, each child will receive a nutritious lunch everyday.
The opportunities provided by the camp have been proven to help the youth stay away from violence on the streets and prevent gang involvement. Every year they hope to enroll more and more eager young students into summer programming and this year they are stretching to try and accommodate up to 120 children.
Would you please help them achieve this important goal by making a contribution? The children and parents of the community would greatly appreciate your support. This is your opportunity to brighten the lives of youngsters who deserve a better childhood.
