In honor of Women’s History Month, soccer players’ wives, girlfriends, and mothers from AEG’s LA Galaxy, along with the team mascot, Cozmo, visited the Women’s Shelter of Long Beach and prepared more than 50 gift bags filled with a variety of cosmetic and self-care products including makeup, body lotion, shampoo, hair conditioner, body wash, tooth paste and mouth wash. The goal was simple, to empower women at the shelter and make sure no one goes without basic needs.
“During Women’s History Month, it is important that we stand united and remember that together we can make a difference in the lives of women. Hopefully, our efforts today can lift the spirits of the women and children here at the shelter and remind them that they are empowered,” said Mariah Rodriguez, Coordinator for the LA Galaxy Community Foundation.
The Women’s Shelter of Long Beach provides a safe place for survivors of domestic violence and their children while they overcome the trauma caused by domestic abuse and embark upon their journey of recovery.
