The Volunteer Center's Heart to Heart Gala - Saturday, June 15, 2019

Thank you to everyone who joined us for an evening celebrating kindness, empathy, compassion and mindfulness, and supported the launch our Youth Mental Health programs at our Heart to Heart Gala on Saturday, June 15 at CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles! Proceeds from the event benefit our new programs addressing the alarming rise in anxiety, depression and suicide in our youth. With your support, we will help local youth and families gradually reduce screen time while increasing face-to-face connections and self-care.
