We believe it’s important to take care of nearby neighborhoods when they are in need. By showing our compassion we not only help restore the neighborhood; we create a long-term ripple effect.
The Compton Initiative is a southern California non-profit organization which aims to restore the City of Compton through quarterly volunteer workdays. On a typical workday, volunteers of all ages and abilities help with projects throughout the city. Projects may include planting flowers, picking up debris, graffiti removal, or painting a school, house, or church. To date, The Compton Initiative has restored 1,300+ sites including 676 houses, 167 murals, 36 schools, 418 school buildings, 36 churches, 2 medical clinics, and 1 community garden.
Lucky for our ambassadors who love spreading kindness, The Compton Initiative is having one of their quarterly workdays this month! For this month’s campaign, we encourage you to step up and sign up to volunteer!
Save the Date! The next Compton Initiative event is Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 7:30-11:30 am.
Helping restore a neighborhood in need changes the way a neighborhood looks through our physical labor. However, it’s the love and compassion we show that truly has a lasting impact on the people who live in these neighborhoods. Youth are more likely to succeed when they are proud of their school and want to be there every day. Families enjoy more quality time with each other when there are places, like parks, for them to go to that are well maintained. People are generally in better health because they are happier and motivated. Having a sense of pride in where one lives builds confidence and hope!
