Cause: “Latinas Guiding Latinas is celebrating its 25th year as a campus organization whose main goal is to help underprivileged young students in the East LA community reach full potential. LGL’s mentorship program currently serves four public schools: Kennedy Elementary, Belvedere JH, Roosevelet SH, and Garfield SH. The organization is able to carry out its goal of mentoring young children in a highly Latino concentrated community through the help of specially trained UCLA student mentors.
Money raised is used to purchase supplies that engage K-12 students in various activities that expose them to the importance of community service, caring for the environment, and pursuing higher education.”
