Spread Cheer This Year

The Beach Cities Holiday Gift Bag program, funded by your donations, gives more than 250 bags to seniors and adults with disabilities filled with essential supplies like grocery gift cards, calendars, soap, kitchen towels, stamps, crossword puzzles, flashlights, batteries and more! Since 1998, friendly volunteers have enjoyed delivering holiday gift bags and this year we again invite community members and their families to join us in spreading cheer! 

What People are Saying About Holiday Gift Bags

"Oh let me tell you what happened yesterday! 3 handsome men from the Fire Department visited me and they said that they have presents for me. I burst out crying in front of them because it was so touching. I called my family back East and told how much it meant to me. Thank you very much for thinking of me and doing all the wonderful things in our community". -Bridget, Manhattan Beach

“This is one senior here who really appreciates all that you do for seniors. Your organization goes the extra mile” -Nathan C., Client

“The holidays should be a joyous time. BCHD gives the MBPD the opportunity to spread smiles and cheers to seniors in Manhattan Beach.” -Officer Colombo & Karen Hill, Volunteer MBPD Volunteer



Thanks to all of the wonderful community support, we were able to meet our goals to spread cheer to isolated seniors and disabled adults in the community! We look forward to continuing this tradition in the next holiday season and hope that you will join us!
