This month at CityHeART

Do you have any plans for August? Here at CityHeART, we have events popping up all over the place, and we hope some of them spark an interest!

HeARTsy’s HeARTastic Events for Kids

HeARTsy kicked off August with a Summer Workshop Series that is continuing throughout the month. Kids who attend the workshops will participate in a holistic art experience that touches on topics such as self-love and self-care.


We’ll also be at First Fridays at Bixby Knolls tonight, doing an interactive art activity to promote our program. On August 17, HeARTsy will offer its monthly art workshop at Century Villages at Cabrillo, providing an immersive art experience for children living in affordable housing. We’re very excited to interact with some growing child HeARTists!

Harvest Partners and Feeding Long Beach: Growing and Feeding Locally

CityHeART is keeping it consistent with weekly harvests from Harvest Partners LB and weekly sack lunch Tuesdays from Feeding Long Beach. Both programs keep working hard to provide local produce and healthy snacks to those in need in the community.  We’re always in need of volunteers for weekly harvests and sack lunch Tuesdays. If you’re interested, you can sign up on the main website. Harvest Parters LB also made an appearance at the first annual Tomato Fest!

The CityHeART Swap by Connect!

We hope you’re ready to swap your heart out at CityHeART’s upcoming clothing, toy, and produce swap! At Bixby Park, we’ll have an area set up with different tables where you can pop in and trade or donate your slightly loved clothing and toys. If you grow your own produce, there will be an area to swap that as well! This project, headed by Connect!, is something that brings all of our programs together. We hope to see you there!

CityHeART At the Urban Hive Market

Our booth at July’s Urban Hive Market was a grand success, and it’s all because of you! We met so many new and returning people. All your donations came out to more than a whopping $400! Thank you so much for helping us fundraise for our organization. We look forward to seeing you again next time we are there!

We hope with all of our upcoming events that you have a fun-packed and exciting August.


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!
