What We Do

The PAL program is a year round program designed to give community children a safe program to attend after school and during the summer. Through our partnership with the Salvation Army, the Police Activities League offers various programs that will give each member an opportunity to learn new and exciting things as well as meet new friends.

EVERY PARENT NEEDS A PAL

I was left with raising my kids on my own.  I thought, "how am I going to do this?"  I was worried. Then my prayers were answered.  Because of PAL, his grades are up. He's just excelled so much.

Get Involved

Funding is provided through various fundraisers and in-kind donations from business owners and private citizens. Individual giving from generous donors is the cornerstone of our organization. We could not do it without you & every little bit helps!

Right now our main goal is to secure a permanent location that PAL can call home.  With over 200 kids on a waiting list for the program, it is vital that we have our own facility. If you have any information on a space that may be of use, please contact us here.  Below are also more ways to help out.  

 

ATTEND AN UPCOMING EVENT

Our next event is the annual Pasadena PAL 2018 Golf Classic held on October 5, 2018 at Brookside Golf Club.
