Love in the Mirror was founded 12 years ago and we have been so grateful to be able to support our community in so many ways. Even during the pandemic, we have been able to continue to provide new socks, hygiene items, toys and more to the community and we are looking forward in growing this organization and making more of an impact right here in Long Beach. Please join us in raising much needed funds so we can continue our work and helping others.

We are kicking off the Road to Our 10 Year Anniversary on Thursday, September 19, 2019. In 10 weeks, Love in the Mirror will turn 10-years-old! That is how old Jonas was told he would have to be before he could volunteer at many of the shelters in his area. He was only 6-years-old and didn’t want to wait! We are so glad he didn’t! With the help of donors and volunteers, Love in the Mirror has helped over 60,000 people in need and created hundreds of volunteer opportunities.
Follow our journey for the next 10 weeks as we share all of our memories, events, donations, volunteers, accomplishments, and more in weekly newsletters and on our website, facebook, and instagram! Make sure to tag #loveinthemirror in your memories, too!
