BENEFITING: The Good Shepherd Shelter of Los Angeles
EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2015
The Good Shepherd Shelter provides a safe, nurturing environment in which mothers and their children can heal, reawaken their dignity and self-confidence, and learn the skills that will help them stop the cycle of domestic violence. The children at the Good Shepherd Shelter, however, are unable to leave campus this summer to attend summer camp, and are unable to afford the summer camps that many of our children enjoy. Therefore, we want to bring summer camp to them, and our Summer Fun Fundraiser will help to do just that!
Our Summer Fun Fundraiser aims to raise at least $6,000 for the children at the Good Shepherd Shelter (“GSS”) for a two-week Summer Camp Program on the GSS Campus. Specifically, the money raised will help fund the CRE Outreach Performing Arts Program. CRE uses theatre to enhance self-esteem, encourage self-expression and empower individuals to overcome the challenges in their lives. CRE will help create two (2) one week summer theater camps for the children of the Good Shepherd Shelter that will end in a final performance piece of the campers’ creations.
