Palos Verdes, Calif.—Ticktockers (daughters) and Patronesses (mothers) from the National Charity League, Inc., Palos Verdes Chapter spent the day at Torrance Beach with Peace4Kids, an organization dedicated to empowering foster and at-risk youth from South Los Angeles to be leaders and promote peace in their lives by providing activity-based programs in a safe, nurturing, and positive environment.
Palos Verdes Chapter Ticktockers and Patronesses were paired with over 65 Peace4Kids children ranging in age from 4-17 years old to play in the sand, jump in the waves, and boogie board, and provided snacks and lunch. For some Peace4Kids children, this was their first time seeing the ocean—something new and amazing. For every Ticktocker and Patroness, providing a safe and fun day at the beach was something special. Hand in hand, this was not just another day at the beach.
