THE DAY AT THE BEACH "ADOPT A CHILD FOR ONE DAY" bonds children, families, companies and communities through gifts of personal time, attention, TLC and one-on-one mentoring.
WHAT IS DAY AT THE BEACH?
Day At The Beach is an extraordinary experience that matches over 300 adult volunteer mentors with over 300 at-risk children from different schools, shelters and foster care programs across LA County for a day of fun. The P.S. I Love You Foundation and its' partners provide all of the necessities for a perfect beach day including t-shirts, boogie boards, school supplies, food, drinks, toys and games, and access to special activities like face painting, surf lessons, make-up lessons, and relay races.
The purpose of our annual Day At The Beach Event is to bring the community together through an easy and memorable event that allows adults to mentor, give back and share time and hope with at-risk youth living in nearby communities like Compton, Watts and Long Beach.
A huge splash of red, is what you’ll see and a sea of love is what you’ll feel when over 600 children and adults come together for a day of hope, love, trust building and laughter during our signature event by the Manhattan Beach Pier.
