Best Start Broadway-Manchester recently hosted “Winter Wonderland: Resource Fair and Toy Giveaway”, a family-friendly holiday celebration that provided a safe environment for families and children at Green Meadows Recreation Center.

“Winter Wonderland: Resource Fair and Toy Giveaway” had entertainment and activities for all ages that included snow, the Grinch, games, raffles, Tommy The Clown, a video game truck, Zumba, yoga, informational booths, DJ, free food, and more!

Best Start Broadway-Manchester and Green Meadows Recreation Center partnered to create “Winter Wonderland: Resource Fair and Toy Giveaway” to provide resources, a tree planting activity, and a fun space to encourage quality time amongst families. The tree planting activity was a product of a CAL FIRE Urban and Community Forestry Program Grant awarded to the city of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and aligns with Best Start Broadway-Manchester’s mission to improve the community.

Community residents of Best Start Broadway-Manchester come together to improve the well-being of children from birth until age five. “Best Start Broadway- Manchester created this event to provide information to our community, better our community, and inform our community that we are always a resource,” says Renee Parker, leadership member of Best Start Broadway-Manchester.


Residents can get involved with Best Start Broadway-Manchester by attending their monthly community partnership meetings held every fourth Tuesday of each month to discuss different ways to improve the lives of families with children. Free childcare, food, and transportation are provided.
