Hello all! It's been a while since our last shindig, and we didn't even get to post on it yet! Here's a late update on our get together during the holiday season :) During the holiday season, we wanted to work with our youths to give back youths to give back to the Long Beach community. The holidays may be an exciting and festive time for those who can afford it and have family and friends to share it with... but not everyone has such luxuries. We wanted to share our joy and abundance with those who were a little down on their luck, so we bought and made a load of food (turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, dinner rolls, pumpkin pie, chips, and water!), collected some clothing, and took to a park in Long Beach to give to those who were in more need.
We were met by warm smiles and thanks, and it was such an incredible experience for us all!
After our afternoon of service, we went to eat lunch at Round Table Pizza where we happily stuffed ourselves with pizza, salad and breadsticks. We had four December birthdays (Jordan, Cindy, Cameron, and Beans), so we celebrated them with delicious cheesecake dessert!
After our delicious lunch, we went over to downtown Long Beach, where we had some fun childlike fun playing in the arcade!
All in all, we had a great time catching up with our young Eayikes folk and our staff members. It was a fulfilling day of service as well as a relaxing and fun day to play and reconnect. We have some plans for some more cool Eayikes events in the works, so keep your eyes peeled and your ears open! Thanks so much for visiting our blog and re-visiting our great memories with us!
