Holiday Festival and Coloring Activity
December 19, 2019
The final activity we had at our site was a holiday festival. This included a coloring activity, a movie projected in a separate room for those that didn't want to partake in the activity, as well as providing food and beverages. To keep with our mission we continued to provide homework assistance for those that needed it. Parental participation was at an all time high with 98% of parents participating in the festival by providing us with snacks and drinks.
To top this great day off, we had a visit from our sponsors and a special visit from Josh Newman, a previous congressional Senate representative of our 29th District. We thank all our sponsors, donors, and Josh Newman for stopping by to visit us.
December 8, 2019
For this particular offsite event, we provided 41 participants and their parents with entry into in the theater as well as with gift cards to McDonalds for them to have a meal after the event. The majority of those that attended the event had never seen a theater performance before; therefore, this experience was very unique to a great majority of our students.
As the turnout was so great and the feedback from the participants and their families was in high praise of the experience, we decided to return for another performance.

To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday as well as the upcoming fall break, Rosie's Garage held an onsite activity and a movie and pizza afternoon. After all students were assisted with their homework we provided them with pizza, juice, and additional snacks for their movie experience. For those students that didn't want to watch the movie, we had additional coloring activities at the center.

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies that will increase the presence of science in the lives of our participants. For this event we were able to take 36 students and their parents to the Children's Museum in La Habra, CA. We provided the entry into the museum and food for all participants. There is no excuse to avoid the positive change science has on the developing mind.
La Habra Kiwanis Club Visit
December 17, 2019
Rosie's Garage received a surprise holiday visit from La Habra's Kiwanis Club. The two representatives handed out stockings filled with sweets and school supplies. All our students received a stocking and partook in singing with the Kiwanis representatives.
In addition to the wonderful gifts they gave our students they also gave Rosie's Garage some items that were on our wish list for the site.
It takes a lot of time, effort, and money to maintain our organizational mission: to end generational poverty. Please, consider donating to our organization to help insure programing remains free to all our participants.
