Our Mission

Las Candalistas — “The Candle Lighters” — is a nonprofit philanthropic organization committed to Los Angeles County’s South Bay community. Our mission is to promote the health and well-being of our South Bay children and environment and help ensure a bright future for both. We do this by raising funds to support institutions that share these objectives, collecting items for their wish lists and volunteering.
