Long Beach Proud! <3

There are so many things to be proud about in the beautiful City of Long Beach. We are so happy to be building our outreach organization in a community that is filled with lovely people who celebrate one another’s diversity and equality ❤

In the aftermath of a beautiful Long Beach Pride weekend, join Connect! and Auspicious Arts at the LGBTQ Center Tuesday, May 23, from 6-9 pm for a self-care workshop! CityHeART aims to “wholeheARTedly love our city and tell its stories,” and we do that through a handful of unique service programs. These two CityHeART programs have put together a workshop that teaches YOU how to love yourself! AND as a special treat, Harvest Partners LB will be serving grapefruit tonics made from locally grown and harvested grapefruits!! ❤

What did CityHeART do over the weekend?

HeARTsy kicked it off on Friday afternoon with an awesome Love Your Selfie art workshop for children at Century Villages at Cabrillo.

Feeding Long Beach served a hot spaghetti dinner to the children and their families after the art workshop wrapped up!

Connect! led its weekly women’s group meeting at Beacon for him ❤

On Saturday morning, Harvest Partners LB led its weekly harvest!

Thank you to all the many volunteers and donors who continue to support our mission and help us do what we do!


Feeding Long Beach at Urban Hive!

Just when we thought Downtown Long Beach couldn’t get any livelier … the Urban Hive Market began lighting up the fourth Friday of each month! In April, Feeding Long Beach of CityHeART was there to spread some love, sell raffle tickets and other goodies, and raise some funds to support our mission! ❤

Last month, Feeding Long Beach rocked a cozy booth filled with all sorts of hand-made and donated goods to be sold for the cause. The wares included tamales (which sold out fast!), coloring books, jewelry, clothes for all ages, handbags, and wallets!

Raffle tickets sold for $2 a piece, and the prizes included a variety of local favorites, like a gift certificate to The Pie Bar! Every $2 raised at the booth covered the cost of one sack lunch by Feeding Long Beach. ❤

The first Urban Hive Market for Feeding Long Beach was a success, and it wouldn’t have been without the many who donated and came out to support. We hope to see all of you on May 26 for the next Urban Hive Market!

When does Feeding Long Beach serve sack lunches? Every Tuesday at Beacon for Him!

Monthly Partnership with CVC

Last month, HeARTsy led a spring-themed workshop, and everyone painted beautiful gardens and flowers! Feeding Long Beach brought a pizza dinner paid for by donors who support our mission. It was a beautiful afternoon.

This Friday, at 3:30 p.m., HeARTsy will lead a Love Your Selfie workshop with the kiddos, and Feeding Long Beach will serve a pasta dinner for the participating families between 5:30-6 p.m.

This monthly project serves about 20 people living in affordable housing at Century Villages — we would love to see these numbers grow!
