Maryvale Project


As part of Dogeared’s social responsibility, we are always looking to involve our staff in our giving efforts. This year, we had a wonderful opportunity with the Maryvale Orphanage to create gifts for the kids to open at their holiday party!

Our staff was really excited to be involved in each step of the process, so we followed the different departments as we all worked together to create something really special for the Maryvale kids.

Established in 1856 by the Daughters of Charity as the first orphanage in Los Angeles, Maryvale has operated continuously for more than 157 years. As the first child-welfare organization in Los Angeles, Maryvale has a long history of caring for orphaned, abused or neglected children. Over the years, Maryvale has evolved from an orphanage to an agency providing care for foster youth. To learn more, visit
