Hermosa Beach schools receive big gift from Kiwanis Holiday Tree Lot sales
The Hermosa Beach Kiwanis Club is donating $40,000 in proceeds from last year’s Holiday Tree Lot sales to school programs and for college scholarships. Among the recipients is the Hermosa Beach School District counseling program, which received a $10,000 check last Thursday. The donation followed a talk to the club by superintendent Jason Johnson about the need for more counselors at the schools because of the pandemic. The club had to buy the trees last September, before knowing if pandemic protocols would allow them to have a tree lot in December, at their traditional location on the Community Center lawn. “We were puckered up there for a while,” said Glenn Menard, who managed the tree lot.
