Thanksgiving Centerpiece Orders are now closed but donations are still welcome!
Who we are
Los Altos Auxiliary is dedicated to supporting the boys at the El Nido campus of Hathaway-Sycamores. Nestled in the hills of Altadena, California, this residential facility provides special education and critical mental health services in an environment that fosters healing and individual growth. We are located in the foothill area north of Glendale, California and are all volunteers.
How we help
In September 1995, money raised by Los Altos provided the boys their first on-campus Library. Over the years we have helped fund computer stations, playground equipment, a silk screening business, and an art center.
Each year we also fund the high school graduation ceremony and a fall carnival, help purchase classroom supplies, and provide holiday gift cards and handmade fleece throws for every boy. This year we have added an Easter bag for each boy as well as individual birthday cakes.
Support our efforts to make life at the El Nido campus a little more home-like by making a direct donation. With these funds, we are able to provide the boys with some of the same activities that we would give our own children, ranging from the after-school carnival in the fall, to pizza, movie, & bingo parties, and a yearly trip to Disneyland. We are also able give each boy a homemade throw, a $50 Target holiday gift card, Easter treats, and more.
We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to thrive in a healthy and supportive environment.
