Junior Board KickNic Fundraiser, January 25, 2020

Kicknic2020 group

Everyone in the Pacoima community was invited to attend El Nido Family Centers fun day in the park with their families. The Kickball Picnic (“Kicknic”) was held at Hansen Dam Recreation Center in Lake View Terrace on Saturday, January 25, 2020.

The focus was community visibility and engagement, in a fun, casual, and family-friendly environment. Inspired by El Nido’s mission to empower families in low-income communities of Los Angeles County, the Kicknic shows El Nido’s clients that El Nido’s supporters and community members are fervently and personally invested in the success and well-being of these families.

For many parents this is one of the few chances they have time together with their children in a casual, stress- free atmosphere.

El Nido’s culinary students prepared a knock-out, fresh lunch that showcased their talent.  These culinary students are from El Nido’s Community Café, an incubator kitchen in Pacoima, for low-income youth and families that provides jobs and entrepreneurial skills

Thank you to all our supporters and sponsors!
