It’s that time of year again and we’re excited to work with the Jordan Downs Center in Watts to provide a basket of joy and needed items. Jordan Downs Center is the community center within the Jordan Downs housing project in Watts that provides a space of empathy and kindness, where families of this neighborhood can get the resources and support they need. They work directly with the children in the community enriching their lives by providing food, support, education, and the arts.

We have 50 kids to surprise with Valentine’s Day Baskets this year. Please choose one or two children to sponsor by filling out the Google Sheets Sign Up. And make sure to sign up with your email to receive further updates.

Here are suggestions of what to include:

• Shoes: 1 pair of sneakers
• Tops: at least 1 shirt + 1 sweatshirt/sweater
• Bottoms: at least 1 pair of athletic pants or jeans
• Socks – 1 pack
• Valentine item(s) – stuffed animal, candy, pencils/markers, stickers, etc.
• Personal note
• Wrap/Decorate – use a valentine gift bag or bag lined with red/pink paper

*Target, Amazon, and Walmart have some great, economical options.


•  You are assigned a specific child or teen. By signing up you are committing to providing the above items. If you cannot complete this project, you must let us know immediately so we can make sure they are not left out.
• For those that cannot make the scheduled Dropoff time on February 9th, please reach out to us directly to coordinate a separate drop off time/location earlier that week.
• We can use a few volunteers on February 9th to collect the bags/baskets and one or two volunteers that can help us drive these baskets from Upper School down to Watts after we finish collecting. Please email us directly if you can help!
