WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

During the past two summers and with the assistance and generosity of many people, over fifty wounded soldiers and their families have had the chance to visit Long Beach for a week of sun, surf and R&R. After visiting Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington DC and observing the needs of these young heroes, a group from our community decided to do something to supplement the excellent medical care our wounded Armed Forces members were receiving. Financed solely by donations, we provided transportation, lodging and meals, as well as special beach and ocean activities, in many cases bringing families together who had been unable to spend any time with their wounded loved ones. We also arranged visits to Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero. Our generous Long Beach community opened their hearts and houses to provide homes away from home for these deserving families. Additionally, the Allegria Hotel donated a number of rooms that were handicapped accessible.

With the continued help and generosity of our Long Beach community, we look forward to offering these wonderful experiences with at least 25 more soldiers and their families during the Summer of 2011!
