Love Them All Foundation
397 N. Central Ave., Upland
LTAF continues its mission to encourage both children & young adults, with disabilities such as Down syndrome, Autism, and Cerebral Palsy, to live life to their fullest potential, through sponsorship in sports activities such as basketball, golf, baseball, bowling, football & soccer, realizing how very important it is to each of them to be a part of a team, have on-going opportunities to meet others just like them, and create life-long friendships. In addition, LTAF sponsors social events such as its annual Valentine’s Day Dance, Easter Egg Hunt, Summer Sports Camp, and Winter Holiday Dance, where the recipients, along with their families, have an opportunity to come together socially throughout the year to share lives, laughter, and most importantly, embrace their individuality. They offer cooking classes occasionally – check to see the schedule of events.
