The COVID-19 pandemic is making it more difficult than ever this holiday season for families to provide food and gifts to their children. Child Care Resource Center (CCRC) is supporting families in need for the 11th straight year with our 2020 Home for the Holidays Food, Book and Toy Drive. We need your help to make this holiday season “merry and bright” for families in northern Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties.
CCRC has an ambitious goal this year of raising $62,500 to give food, books and toys to 2,500 families. Donations made to support our holiday drive stay here in our local community, where close to 330,000 children currently live below the federal poverty level.
“So many families in Southern California are already on a tight budget and these past eight months have been especially challenging, considering the added financial hardship of the pandemic,” CCRC CEO and President Dr. Michael Olenick said. “These are our neighbors and friends. We’re calling on our community members and business leaders to join us in making this a season of hope for local children and families.”
At last year’s event, we collected and distributed more than 10,000 books and toys to deserving children in our local community. Educational books and toys can truly make a difference in a family’s life and we believe it helps cultivates a sense of greater family well-being.
Your $25 donation will give essential supplies, food, and gifts to one family.
