It all began when a GCHope volunteer suggested that her kid’s martial arts studio do a toy drive for GCHope during December. This small idea grew to be a contagious movement throughout the community and turned into a toy, food, and cash drive for the vulnerable children GCHope serves. In one month the American Martial Arts Academy in Fullerton raised $1,600 and around $300 worth of toys and food for underprivileged children. GCHope is so grateful to the couple hundred families that showed up in a big way for families in need this Christmas. This is an incredible amount and we can’t believe how one martial arts academy could be behind all this. Thank you American Martial Arts Academy and all those who participated!
