WHAT IS THE SERVICE PROJECT:
LATLC is working with TWO of our partner charities on a fun project – KIDS HELPING KIDS. We will fill 200 LATLC duffel bags, creating at-home PE kits with balls, jump ropes and other PE equipment donated by Play It Forward, to be distributed to El Nido’s youth from the Pacoima FamilySource Center and the Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD) program. This is a great project for the ENTIRE FAMILY!
LATLC is providing duffel bags, hand sanitizers, stress hearts, and other items to be given to El Nido’s youth. Play It Forward will also provide the same high quality PE equipment they’ve donated to more than 100 local schools for the PE kits to motivate kids to stay fit and active. We encourage the entire family to participate in KIDS HELPING KIDS project!
