2023 MLK Day of Service – Foster Youth Supply Drive

2023 MLK Day of Service


Foster Youth Supply Drive



Finding ways to serve our community, despite these unique times

Join us to make it a “Day On, not a Day Off,” on Monday, January 16th as part of the MLK National Day of Service in Long Beach.

The Need We Serve:

Foster youth in college-age out of care at 18 years old and must become financially independent and responsible for themselves almost immediately.

How to Serve:

We have been gathering basic needs items and school supplies for the last few months.  On our Day of Service, we will be packaging up these items into backpacks to support 80 Guardian Scholars at CSULB.

If you are interested in helping, sign up here:
