If you would like to help, there are several ways you can show your love for these kids:
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.
Organizations and any individual interested in volunteering can also learn more about the temporary shelter and fill out a volunteer interest form.
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.
