HOLIDAY Party & Gifts 2018


Help us give 140 Foster Youth Students at UCLA a Holiday party and gift bags!

Most of these students stay in the dorms all alone for winter break....they truly appreciated the Holiday cheer you help to bring them!

Thanks to your generosity each student will receive:
- UCLA gear
- Sweatshirts and socks
- Chocolates & Holidays treats
- Toiletries (really needed!)
- Gift cards for restaurants (they run out of cafeteria 'swipes' during the long break)
- School supplies
- Other fun items

 

Thank you 2017 Donors, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Boiling Crab, Form Beauty, eSalon, Kind Bar, Celltoo, Jamba Juice and so many generous people!
