This Christmas, COA had the help of almost 150 Elves who volunteered their time to spread Christmas cheer at COA. With their help, we wee able to deliver Christmas baskets filled with toys to almost 900 children in Long Beach and Signal Hill. Parents/Guardians registered for toys for each child, and we even able to give 2 - 3 recommended gift ideas for their child. Our COA Elves then obtained each gift, carefully coordinating the families, wrapped them, and hand-delivered to each home. We brought joy and cheer to every child who might have otherwise gone without it.
🎁 A round of applause for our hardworking elves who put in some serious overtime. Their holiday workout routine: lifting gift boxes and perfecting the art of 'jingle bell jives'! Big thanks to our magical donors and volunteers for making this festive mission sparkle. Seeing those happy little faces was the best gift of all!
