CEF Partners with CSUSM To Provide Gifts for ASES Students

 Carlsbad Educational Foundation & Cal State San Marcos Partner to Give Carlsbad Students a Christmas to Remember 

Carlsbad, California (Dec. 15, 2022) – Kids Care, Carlsbad Educational Foundation’s after-school care program, has partnered with California State University San Marcos’ Human Resources Department to spread holiday cheer to all of the Carlsbad ASES students through the Angel Tree gift-giving program. Students in the ASES program are often low-income and live below the poverty line, this partnership has allowed us to support students whose families face financial hardships during the holidays.

Each student in the ASES program at Buena Vista Elementary School and Jefferson Elementary School created a wish list to hang on the Angel Tree in the CSUSM Human Resources office and receive a special gift on the day of the event.

On December 15th, Susana Martinez, CSUSM Human Resources Coordinator, and two of her elves personally delivered gifts to every student in the ASES program – bringing joy and laughter to every student they came across.

“I’m thrilled we were able to come together and provide a very Merry Christmas for our ASES students.” – Jennifer Rodriguez, Area Manager
