The Carpinteria Children’s Project invites friends and supporters to a virtual event benefitting children and families of the Carpinteria Valley. Community leaders and keynote speaker Senator Monique Limón will highlight local critical issues, efforts to support children and families and how comprehensive family support services are making a difference locally. Longtime advocate Jon Clark of the James S. Bower Foundation will be honored for his commitment to creating a systemic network of support for children in our region.
Due to Covid closures, the organization was unable to collect tuition for six months. Teachers pivoted to providing emergency relief through the Carp Cares phone line, virtual lessons and support to young children in the community and frequent food distributions and delivery. Since reopening, Carpinteria Children’s Project has had a dramatic increase in the number of scholarships requested due to family hardships. Guests at the event will learn how they can support CCP’s children and programs.
All in for Carp Kids will be held virtually via Zoom on March 11 from noon to 1 p.m. To RSVP call (805) 566-1600 or register online at carpchildren.org/all-in. There is no cost to attend.
