Twenty new partner homeowner families attended this year’s celebration where they received a holiday basket filled with gifts and gift cards. The gifts were distributed by Santa Claus himself during our Adopt-a-Family Holiday Celebration, which was held on December 16th at the Calvary Baptist Church in Bellflower.
In addition to presents, guests were treated to a delicious buffet style luncheon and children were invited to design photo frames and ornaments in our kid’s crafting area that was run by our Youth United members.
This event and all of its blessings would not have been possible without our generous sponsors. We wish to thank U.S. Bank for sponsoring the event; Mattel for donating toys; Edison International volunteers for decorating; and Calvary Baptist Church for donating the venue. And of course, we are grateful to Santa Claus for taking time out of his busy schedule to help us hand out presents, and bring smiles to our partner families, staff, and volunteers. See you next year, Santa!
