Sunday-April 7, 2013
1:30 – 4:30pm
Bridges Academy

3921 Laurel Canyon Blvd, Studio City

Last year our little nonprofit took a huge leap and organized our first 4GOOD Family Day.  Since it turned out so AMAZING and was such a success, it has now become our flagship event!  We are happy to announce the second annual 4GOOD Family Day on Sunday, April 7.  It's a one of a kind event where families from all over Los Angeles can join together to volunteer on the same afternoon, under one roof.  Our goal is to SPARK THE SPIRIT OF GIVING BACK! 

We’re keeping the basic concept the same (and the location at Bridges Academy in Studio City), packing the day with loads of hands-on, kid-friendly activities:

 
Just like last year, the more activities the kids do, the bigger the reward.  Each child will have the opportunity to earn a free face painting or 4GOOD give-away.
 

Also we’ll host a myriad of opportunities for families to bring & donate items from their homes, such as:
  • Loose change to donate to some great causes
  • Gently-used stuffed animals to donate to SAFE
  • Gently-used plastic kids toys to donate to Second Chance Toys
  • Canned food and new toiletries for SOVA Food Bank
  • Gently-used teen formal wear -prom dresses and suits & everything in between- donated to A Place Called Home for under-served youth
 
NEW this year, we’ll feature: Young 4GOODers doing Good! Three local 4GOODers will sell their handmade products to raise money for
CHLA as well as raising money to buy school supplies for local area schools through their own self-created Non-Profits.
 
Throughout the day, your family can enjoy:

So Much Giving - So Much GOOD!

On January 20, 2013 more than 40 4GOODers descended on the new SOVA warehouse in Van Nuys, Ca for our National Day of Service.  It was an awesome day of volunteering with some amazing people!  Over 100,000 pounds of food was sorted for distribution to those in need in LA in a few hours. The best part is how much fun all the kids had helping out!

Thank you to everyone who participated.  See you next year!!!
