Harbor Day’s Boy Scout Troop 350 raised over $1,000 at Make a Difference Day and used the proceeds to purchase all the recess and sports equipment wish list items on Paularino Elementary School's wish list. Paularino, located in Costa Mesa, is a school in the Newport Mesa Unified School District. Some members of the troop delivered items to the students and shared their "Why" and "How" with them.
For the past ten years, Harbor Day School has partnered with Project Hope Alliance (PHA), a local nonprofit dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness for children. This long-standing partnership has yielded significant results, and PHA recognized Harbor Day School with the 2023 Youth for Hope award at their annual gala event on April 22. Harbor Day School’s involvement with PHA has taken on many forms, including back in 2013 with middle school students who collected food pantry items and served as role models for over 20 children at the Skyview School in Orange.
