Help celebrate the 5 Year Anniversary of by making a tax-deductible donation to our nonprofit! We set the goal of raising $5,000 for our 5 years of covering the Long Beach community at no cost to our readers. Help keep The562 accessible to the entire community by giving what you can to support our work. If just 1% of our readers gave us $1 per year, we'd never need to fundraise!
