Gov. Gavin Newsom and health officials are recommending the cancellation of gatherings of 250 or more people across California, escalating the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. The new policy from the California Department of Public Health will be in effect at least through March for all residents throughout California.
MADCAPS's mission is to involve mothers and daughters in direct service and support of philanthropic organizations. This show is a celebration of the girls’ hard work and dedication to serving the community.
The show also features a group of boys from Point Loma High known as the MADCHAPS.
Since its inception in 1960, MADCAPS has raised more than $1,270,000 for local charities and performed thousands of hours of volunteer service to nonprofit organizations throughout the San Diego community. Organizations that have benefited from MADCAPS philanthropy include Father Joe’s Villages, YMCA Becky’s House, UCSD Bannister Family House, Rady Children’s Hospital, Autism Tree Project Foundation, Therapeutic Recreation Services, San Diego Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, and San Diego River Park Foundation.
MADCAPS members also volunteer at the yearly Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk.
The organization is composed of over 200 mothers and their daughters in grades 7-12 who reside in Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Hills, and Hillcrest. The girls put in more than 8,000 hours of community service annually. Mothers actively nurture the training of their daughters in philanthropic commitments, teaching personal responsibility, as well as a responsibility to the needs of others, so that all members may fully realize the benefits of involvement in the community.
