Young Men and Moms Unite to Assemble Bikes for Foster Children

The National League of Young Men, South Coast Chapter, held their annual Together We Rise event on Sunday, Dec. 2 devoted to bringing cheer and joy to the less fortunate this past holiday season. In unison with Summer Harvest, local high school men and their mothers collected 75 family games to donate to low-income families and helped assemble 80 bicycles for foster children.

A non-profit organization for young men grades 9-12 and their mothers, the NLYM South Coast Chapter provides a unique program of leadership, culture and protocol opportunities in the community. Through philanthropic work, mothers and sons bond together thus creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Since the start of their volunteer journey, the NLYM has logged a total of 12,100 hours of community service for various local charities including We Care, Heart of the City Food Bank, Good Shepherd Open Table, Summer Harvest, Seal Beach Save Our Beach Clean-Up and the Ronald McDonald House of Long Beach.

By offering inspiring experiences aimed to help young men learn the greatest joys in life come from serving others, the NLYM provides opportunities for young men to discover the confidence and courage to do so by giving back to their communities.

The NLYM South Coast Chapter is made up of 170 young men and their mother members from Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Cypress, Garden Grove, Signal Hill and Long Beach.
