Local Hearts Foundation will be marking a few more milestones before the end of 2020. Coming up next on November 21 in our hometown of Long Beach, we are hosting our 5th Annual Diamonds and Turkeys Event. A turkey giveaway where last year we were able to handout over one thousand turkeys to families and individuals in need. We also provide the children with shoes and warm clothing for the winter, donated by our longtime supporters Diamond Supply Co. and Grizzly Grip Tape.

Please spread the word and invite both families and individuals who are in need of a turkey and some essentials this holiday. Attendees will receive a frozen turkey and a few other thanksgiving staples. We have received donations of canned and dry food goods thanks to Phoenix Rise Project. Amanda, a contracted community service coordinator stationed at Linc Housing, has made that possible. Thank you to her and the volunteers there in Compton.

Our biggest milestone of 2020 will fall on December 19th. We will be hosting our 10th Annual A Diamond Christmas event. We will be handing out thousands and thousands of toys, clothing, personal care items, other necessities, and gifts. This is a very special year for Local Hearts Foundation. Though we know this year has been a test and struggle for some or most of us, the community still needs

your help. More now than ever maybe. Please join us with like minded people from communities all over Los Angeles to help give back to the most in need.

Please attend, be a volunteer in person or virtually by donating. Visit our website to donate and join us in spirit. Become a Local Heart, any amount helps. We have spent the last decade serving the under resourced and under privileged communities in Long Beach and the surrounding cities. This year is very special to our team. Let us show you. Help us make this year even more impactful for the people of Long Beach and all those who attend.
