Lend a Hand with Connections For Children at their Holiday Angels Program

Help parents select toys and books for their children and wrap them as gifts. Each year Connections For Children collects holiday gifts for the children of low-income families in our community to help make their holiday wishes come true. Last year, they collected gifts for 1,000 children up to age 18 whose families live below or near to the poverty level and are enrolled in their child care subsidy programs. Local businesses can participate by hosting donation drives for our Holiday Angels Program. In turn, they make sure that these gifts are distributed to children in our community. On December 15th, 17th and 18th, families will be able to select gifts at our Santa Monica office. You can also participate as a volunteer at the event, by helping parents select toys and books for their children and wrapping gifts. click here to sign up:https://www.laworks.com/opportunity/a0C1N00000a8t7oUAA
