.At Yak Academy-- Redondo Beach, we believe in teaching empathy and generosity. What better way to do so, than to lead by example!
This holiday season, we have decided to extend our holiday cheer beyond the walls and doors of our center. We worked in conjunction with Children's Hospital of Los Angeles to sponsor a family who has a patient admitted in one of their units during this season.
The family that was assigned to us is a local family of 4 living in Hawthorne. Thanks to the generous donations from our Spanish Immersion Preschool & Language Enrichment Families, we were able to collect over $500 in gift cards and a plethora of gifts for a local family.
In order to make connections to our season of giving, we taught lessons and had activities that revolved around empathy and generosity.
On Saturday, December 16th our very own Yak Academy Kindness Ambassador, Melody Perez, represented Yak Academy at CHLA's North Pole. Along with her family, they took all of the gifts and donations and will be given to our sponsored family just in time for the holidays.
We are thankful for the families we have at Yak Academy. Let us remember that every act of kindness, big or small, makes our world a better place! We are thankful for our Yaksters and Yak Families, and wish you all happy holidays.
