LONG BEACH GIVES 2022

Rose Park Neighborhood Association is thrilled to share the exciting news! We will be participating in Long Beach Gives 2022 to raise awareness and funding for the ArtWorksLBC program, a community benefit program of Rose Park Neighborhood Association. ArtWorksLBC serves to foster community building through the revitalization of public spaces and brings art programming to local Long Beach schools, nonprofit organizations, and to attendees at Rose Park every Thursday from 3 to 5pm.

ABOUT

Long Beach Gives is an annual, citywide giving event where individuals and organizations come together across the city of Long Beach (and beyond!) to invest in our community. Since 2019, this campaign raised over $4.6 million for local nonprofit organizations.

Every year, the excitement for Long Beach Gives builds when nonprofits share their fundraising stories. City officials, residents, local businesses, and their employees show their generosity for the community. 

This year’s Long Beach Gives is on September 22nd! The Campaign kicks off with early giving on September 15 and culminates with a 24-hour giving event on September 22! 

Over 200 nonprofits were selected to participate in Long Beach Gives 2022. The Nonprofit Partnership will provide support, training, and marketing materials to support their campaigns.

Rose Park Neighborhood Association is looking for individual supporters who have participated in the ArtWorksLBC programming or just love what we do to help us fundraise and get the word out to the community!

ArtWorksLBC Brings Mosaic Hearts to Burbank Elementary

Burbank Elementary teachers and staff create mosaic hearts.

Teachers and staff at Burbank Elementary took time in their Thursday afternoon meeting to create mosaic hearts with ArtWorksLBC Director, Dawn Mendelson. The idea to bring additional art projects to the school for teachers, staff and students was welcomed by Burbank Elementary Principal, Scott Fleming and the Hearts Across Long Beach project was a perfect place to start.

The Hearts Across Long Beach project began as a community wellness initiative for essential workers in response to COVID19, and will continue to be available for individuals and participating organizations for creation, connection, healing, and self expression.

The mosaic hearts created by Burbank Elementary teachers and staff will be collected and arranged as part of a larger community exhibit.

Thank you to Principal Fleming, teachers and staff of Burbank Elementary for participating!
