The holiday spirit was soaring high on the 23rd and 24th of December 2023, during our annual ICO gift wrapping fundraiser. Every year, we organize this event to aid our efforts in facilitating outdoor trips for students enrolled in the Title I schools we collaborate with in the Los Angeles and Orange counties. During the 2022-2023 school year, our Angeles ICO leaders led 84 trips for 2530 students from marginalized communities within the area.

We were thrilled and grateful to see how many were here to support us in our passion-driven project–through participating in this labor of love or contributing through generous donations. With everyone’s support, we raised an incredible $2530!

We’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our generous donors, the REI Arcadia store, our dedicated ICO leaders, volunteers, and the high school students from San Gabriel High School and Stem Academy in Hollywood for their invaluable contributions that made this event. Special appreciation to ICO leader Shih Chen for leading the successful coordination of our annual fundraiser at the REI Arcadia store, making it possible for us to host the event at their store.
