Philanthropy Corner

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Esplanade is honored to highlight the remarkable achievements of not just one but two impactful programs close to our hearts. Firstly, the monthly Veterans Wellness Lunch program, spearheaded by Police Officer Jeff Joyce and funded through FLAG (Foundation for Learning, Athletics, & Growth), continues to provide our veteran officers with essential support and camaraderie.

In addition, we’re honored to highlight the remarkable achievements of the Nicks Kids Youth Soccer Program. Founded in 2016 by two LAPD/CSP officers, Nicks Kids began with a simple goal: to provide children within the Nickerson Gardens community with a safe space to play and grow. What started with four children kicking a soccer ball in the Nickerson field has blossomed into a transformative program, impacting the lives of countless young athletes. Esplanade has proudly supported both Nicks Kids and FLAG since their inception.

Every Wednesday and Friday night at 109th St Park, Nicks Kids gathers to play soccer, fostering athletic skills and social and emotional development. Nicks Kids has achieved extraordinary outcomes by instilling moral values and assisting the whole child. From a 100% graduation rate to 85% of high school graduates attending college, the program is a testament to the power of community support and mentorship.

We’re immensely proud of Officer Jeff Joyce for his instrumental role in programs and recent recognition with the Community Policing Medal. His dedication and leadership have made a profound impact, strengthening our community and uplifting those within it.

In October 2022, the SACK event brought the community together at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge. It was a fantastic day of camaraderie and competition, featuring a fun winner-takes-all tournament with 15 boards in play.

What made it even more special was that the proceeds from this event were directed towards two great causes: RUCK for Vets and Nicks Kids.

Thank you to all who participated and supported this event, making a positive impact on the lives of veterans and children in need!

We are proud to have had a few of our employees and friends humbly take part in the Ruck for Vets walk in Redondo Beach, California, in May 2023.

Ruck for Veterans, a non-profit organization, aimed to raise awareness, provide assistance to those in need, and offer unwavering support to our veterans and their families who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Through this event, we came together to educate, remember, and express our heartfelt appreciation for the service of our brave brothers and sisters in uniform.

Together, we honored their legacy and made a positive impact in the lives of our veterans and their families who have given so much for our country.
