Encompassing one of the three pillars of LBSA, Community Service has a significant impact on our members and our neighboring communities. Made from different remarkable members, the LBSA family exemplifies how community service and, along with our two other pillars, academics and social, represents a well-rounded student leading to the professional and social growth they obtain. It illustrates how one’s life should also consist of giving and helping those in need while helping shape the world and community we live in for the better.
In May 2018, we hosted our annual Youth & Parent Conference (YPC). During this program, we invited high schoolers from Bell High School to attend several workshops with guest speakers that covered essential topics relating to the transition into college. We also had a student parent panel to answer questions the students had regarding college life.
In the past, we collaborated with @lbsa.chapmanu and visited San Clemente State Beach for our beach cleanup 🌊
In January 2019, we volunteered at the OC’s Second Harvest Food Bank for the second time in the 2019 academic school year to help package donated food items in their distribution center.
All the packaged goods were distributed to families and individuals in need in Orange County to stop hunger and create a future where no one goes hungry. Ever.
In December 2018, LBSA participated in the Raise Foundation’s Adopt-A-Family Holiday Project. There we organized gifts for families in need throughout the City of Orange.
Miracle Babies’ founding purpose is to support these NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) families by providing need-based financial assistance to low-income families through our Family Assistance Program. By helping to address some of the financial barriers that keep parents away from their new baby (transportation, groceries, and child care costs), we help moms, and dads get to and from the NICU more often, increasing rates of breastfeeding and Kangaroo Care, a skin-to-skin practice.
