We will also be collecting donations for LONG BEACH HUMANITARIAN FAMILY REUNIFICATION EFFORTS. For more information or to make a donation go to:https://longbeach.gov/pages/city-news/lb-humanitarian-family-reunification-efforts/?fbclid=IwAR3addHe3NbOeVEzvU-x77i4hyHIGJ-JMsAro_jp5oK_KnRCmkmnYQ3A07A

Last week the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services began operations for their humanitarian shelter, located at the Long Beach Convention Center, for unaccompanied children arriving from the border of Mexico. Long Beach has welcomed its first group of children. Our shelter will mostly welcome young girls, some who also have siblings.
The mission of this humanitarian shelter is quick family reunification. We must treat every single child with compassion, kindness, and love.

If you would like to help, there are several ways you can show your love for these kids:
BOOK DONATIONS
One of the first things you can do is donate a book. Go to http://longbeach.gov/press-releases/long-beach-launches-book-donation-drive-for-arriving-migrant-children/ We need books in English and Spanish.
VOLUNTEER
Organizations and any individual interested in volunteering can also learn more about the temporary shelter and fill out a volunteer interest form.
DONATIONS
For anyone interested in making a monetary donation, the Long Beach Community Foundation has created the Migrant Children Support Fund. Donations made to the fund will be awarded to grants to organizations that will provide educational and play items for the children during their stay in Long Beach, and gift cards to assist the children as they are reunited with their families. Uses of these charitable funds will be updated as the needs arise during the children’s stay in Long Beach.
