Long Beach Awards Sponsorships

By Karen Robes Meeks

Approximately $376,000 have been awarded to 124 community projects by the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners, which govern the Port of Long Beach.

Funding – which benefit area organizations dedicated to the arts, environment, social justice and historic preservation – was provided to the Cambodia Town Culture Parade and Festival, the Shared Science 2020 Tech Girls Workshop, the Long Beach Homeless Coalition’s LB Homelessness Ally Program and the Community Action Team’s 30‐Minute Beach Cleanups.

“Long Beach has an abundance of wonderful organizations that produce impressive events and programs. We’re honored to be able to support them through our sponsorship program,” said Long Beach Harbor Commission President Bonnie Lowenthal. “It’s a way for us to strengthen our commitment to the community while bringing awareness to the port’s important role in the region.”
