Charity event Trick or Treat in Compton will be held by East Side Riders

On October 29th they will again provide the community with the opportunity to support. Last time The East Side Riders Bike Club and the Hey Leche Foundation equipped dozens of children with new shoes, school supplies, and computers.

Compton, a city located in southeastern Los Angeles County, has a population of 96,456, according to official U.S. Census figures. Of these, 68% are Latino; while African Americans make up 28.9%.

These two groups on average had a per capita income of $17,049 between the years 2015 and 2019; in addition, 20.5% (19,404) live in poverty.

The Hey Leche Foundation was born from the idea that the impact in the world can greatly affect generations to come.  Our youth and most vulnerable populations have a dire need of guidance into being lifelong viable citizens.

Their mission is to awaken the minds and bodies of the youth. They intend to do this by providing food, haircuts, and self-development workshops. By focusing on communities that will benefit the most from these support systems collectively.

There were 34 lucky winners of a laptop, a backpack full of school supplies, new tennis shoes, and a $ 100 gift card, thanks to the altruistic efforts of The East Side Riders Bike Club and the Hey Leche Foundation of the City of Compton.

John Jones III, president and co-founder of the East Side Riders Bike Club, noted that children from Compton, the Watts area and other cities in southeast Los Angeles told them why they deserve a laptop, a $100 shopping voucher at Smart & Final, and other items they delivered, including 200 backpacks.

From an early hour, Latino and African-American families lined up outside a shoe store where children entered alone to choose for free the new tennis shoes that will be released at the beginning of the new school year.

The children also received a haircut.

“You can’t even imagine how the children were happy with the new haircut. I saw that it gave them a new sensation, confidence, and smiles.” Said Igor Danilchenko, participant of the event, experienced barber, member of the jury of Barber Connect Russia 2017.

This time children will also get haircuts and many other necessary things, and of course a lot of candies and an amazing Halloween atmosphere.

Hey Leche Foundation has main programs, such as:

  • So Fresh Program, which delivers high self-esteem and confidence. Understanding that when you look good you feel good and when you feel good you do good.
  • The Yummy Tummy Program, that is providing meals
  • The Prolific Program – Development Workshops, that are focused on creating an Action Plan to Goals and formulas to execute intentions.
