We Need You!


We need YOU to help make this Fourth of July the best ever in Pacific Palisades.

PAPA needs close to 100 volunteers on July 4th, from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Volunteering is fun and gives you a wonderful sense of civic pride. We can use your help for as little as one hour . . . or for the entire day!
