DISCUSSION
Partners of Parks serves as a fiscal agent for many neighborhood organizations across the City of Long Beach. Sunny Central Neighborhood Association wishes to

This allocation will serve as a one-time contribution of $5,000 for Sunny Central Neighborhood Association’s programming efforts, which may include community clean-ups, food giveaways, tree planting and watering projects, holiday neighborhood gatherings, adopt a family programs, neighborhood leadership and mentoring programs, etc. The remaining $400 are to serve as a direct payment to Partners of Parks for the annual fee of the association’s membership to the partnership.
