The Long Beach Community Foundation (LBCF) has selected Precious Lamb Preschool for their annual National Philanthropy Day project. On Saturday, October 1, 2016 (8:30 am to 3:30 pm) LBCF and Precious Lamb Board, staff, and volunteers will transform a previously used office/storage space into a comfort room, to be used by parents & teachers to carry out private conversations for the betterment of the children. The room will be a relaxing and private space so that parents and teachers can "take a breath" and have conversations that assist the parent during troubling times or when in need of a private conversation regarding a child.


LBCF will also transform the outdoor play area to be a more private, fun, and inviting space for the children, that will complement the existing improvements. Specific upgrades include green screen faux foliage chain-link fencing cover, a new sandbox area, new benches sized for children, paint, new storage bins, low maintenance landscape improvements, and new playground soft flooring to connect to existing flooring.

If you are 18 years old or older and interested in volunteering, please contact Colleen at (562) 435-9033 or colleen@longbeachcf.org.
