Love La Mirada is a community organization whose goal is simply to make a difference every day for our community. One of our initiatives is to help support and serve the most vulnerable and underserved individuals and families in our community.
Each month, we are looking to select one or two individuals/families to bless. A few of our initiatives include: providing gift cards to local groceries, sponsoring a family to a night out in La Mirada (dinner + LM Theatre tickets), or providing swim lessons to children at the Splash! Aquatic Center in our city.
We are also open to hearing your recommendations on what would best serve the individual/family you are nominating.
If you know of someone (including yourself) that that we might be able to bless in one of these ways, please complete the questions below.
Your name and contact information will remain confidential and will not be shared with the person you have nominated.
ABOUT LOVE LA MIRADA
Inspired by the Love Our Cities movement started in Modesto, California, Love La Mirada began with the support of a dozen local church leaders who met together to consider how they might challenge their congregations to partner with other organizations and residents of La Mirada for the good of our city. Others joined together to form a team to start up an official organization dedicated to helping people discover more about our city, serve together to improve our neighborhoods, and connect with other residents of La Mirada into greater community.
After two years of Covid, Love La Mirada is hoping to reimplement our annual city-wide Day of Service for 2022. We are planning our event to take place this fall - stay tuned for additional details. We hope you will join us.
