Agape Children’s Museum sends a
Special Thank you to the City of Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine WRAP
programs who partnered with us in helping to send Stuffed Toys to the Children
and their families who were affected by Hurricane Doran in the Bahamas.
In August, Hurricane Dorian hit the
Bahamas as a category five hurricane with winds reaching 185mph (297km/h). It
matched the highest recorded wind speeds at landfall and stayed over the most
affected islands, Grand Bahama and Abaco, for 48 hours.
Many children and their families who survived the hurricane have lost their relatives, livelihoods and have been left with little water or food. After an event of this magnitude, children and adolescents may need psychological support to cope.
In an effort to bring hope through
the holidays – Agape Children Museum along with a partnership with WRAP collected
stuffed Toys and Animals and sent them to Children affected by the catastrophic
disaster. A stuffed toy and animal is more than just a toy — it’s
an expression of love that creates healing, hope and joy. The Mission of this
humanitarian project was to help Bahamian kids, experience all the joy and
imagination childhood has to offer during this most difficult of times. Agape
Children’s Museum thanks Burbank, Edison, Garfield, Grant, Herrera, Hudson,
King and Lafayette schools for all their stuffed toy contributions.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE BOARD, STAFF, PARTNERS AND FRIENDS OF AGAPE CHILDREN’S MUSEUM. Please follow us on this website and Facebook and Instagram to support all the programs, outreaches and events for 2020. Agape Children’s Museum endeavors to empower children and their families through health, literacy and art, helping to inspire to become impactful members of their community. We believe the power of art can be a foundational force which exposes human beings to exciting ways of learning and educating the world around us.
