As longtime Manhattan Beach residents, we know how important our high-quality schools are, so this year The McCracken Group is proud to sponsor both the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation as well as the Meadows Elementary School PTA.
"Wintertime" in the South Bay
Our version of winter is just a tad warmer than most parts of the country, but we really can’t complain about that. Enjoy the season & remember to breathe!
Gratitude is a year-round mindset, but it's always good to refresh this feeling around Thanksgiving. Whether you adopt a family through your school or church or donate to the needy in another way, we all know how important it is to give back.
We always support the Spark of Love Toy Drive through Mark's fire station, and we also like to donate to the LA Regional Food Bank. If you're looking for other ideas to donate your volunteer time or support, check out Giving Tuesday.
