Bike Giveaway

Our Bike Program took part in North Valley Caring Services Bike-a-thon and Community Fair on April 16th. The smiles on children’s faces who won bikes were heartwarming. Thanks to our volunteers and the boys for all their hard work!




Sandwiches Making Event for the Homeless

Volunteers from Temple Aliyah and other organizations came together for a day of service at the Lodge with the goal of making sandwiches for the homeless. We were able to make about 500 sandwiches that were delivered to Lutheran Social Services, Family Rescue Center, Guadalupe Center and LA Family Housing. Thank you very much to everyone who participated!




Cupcakes and Jeopardy!

Our young men had an amazing time decorating cupcakes with Allheart volunteers. It is absolutely one of the activities they enjoy the most! After the cupcake decoration, the boys played Jeopardy in groups. Thanks to all the participants, you all did a great job!



Cooking Classes

Pacific Lodge residents participate in hands-on cooking classes with volunteers and staff who teach them cooking basics. From pizza to chili, pasta and pancakes, the boys are able to learn and sharpen their cooking skills. Thanks to our great group of volunteers for helping the boys enrich their creative culinary skills and develop a sense of accomplishment.
