Santa Cruz Gives: The Gift of Play
Dear Friend,

Santa Cruz Gives is LIVE! Make a difference in the life of kids and families.

Park spaces and outdoor programs have been a lifesaver to us all during the pandemic. At County Park Friends, we have been able to bring these essential resources to the kids, families, neighbors who need them most. Help us activate green spaces for health and joy!
"My family loves to go on Saturdays to paint rocks...it has been so wonderful to see the transformation of Felt Park and we love to walk through the maze and observe the messages on the rocks as well as the art- so pretty. We always feel welcome and when people come by and say that they love the project, the children are very happy, we feel in community."
 Miguel, father of 4
"My daughter loved the folkloric classes....they have helped her a lot in her physical health, because she lost 13 pounds in less than a month just from dancing folklorico. My daughter was suffering from anxiety and just wanted to eat. After the presentation of the folk dance that the children had in Felt Park in the community celebration Corazón de Mujer, my daughter hugged me and said 'Mommy, my dream came true.' " J.S. Mother of 3
Our organization is committed to tackling barriers to park access and equity and a big part of our ability to do so is the philanthropic funds we receive from people like you. We've already received $3500 in challenge grants and now the campaign is open for YOU.
