The Partnership was one of nine charities recognized at Norwalk High School’s Charity to Charities assembly in Los Angeles last week.
Norwalk student presenter, Elizabeth Muñoz, shared her personal story describing how her family has been impacted by substance use and addiction. Elizabeth chose the Partnership as her personal cause and the senior class chose our organization as one of the charities to receive a donation of $1,520. The students raised the money themselves by selling granola bars and raised nearly $14,000 for all of the charities that were honored at the assembly.
“It was truly heartwarming to be included among this incredible group of people and to have the Partnership chosen by the senior class of Norwalk High as one of their charities of choice,” said Partnership Senior Vice President Teri Christensen, who attended the event. “The personal stories that were shared brought tears several times. It was an honor to be a part of such an important and moving event.”
Among the other nonprofits in attendance were Alliance for Children’s Rights, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Make-a-Wish of Greater LA, Susan G. Komen, UCLA Rape Center of Santa Monica, American Lung Association, Breast Cancer Angels and St. Jude Medical Center.
