La Casa had two “Operation Gobble” days this year. We distributed more than 100 donated turkeys to local families! A big thank you goes out to Assembly Member Ed Chau for his turkey donation and to the Golden State Water Company for their turkeys, as well as the volunteers who helped make the event a success!
Also this past month, a large group of members from Pacific Crossroads Church visited La Casa and hosted their 5th annual “Boxes of Love” event. These volunteers provided a continental breakfast for our invited families, put together games for the kids and even set up a photo booth so everyone could take home a special picture. As they left, everyone received a large box filled with food items perfect for preparing on Thanksgiving. Thank you to Leslie Kita, from Pacific Crossroads, for organizing that event!
We are truly thankful to everyone who works so hard to gather donations, deliver food and plan events in an effort to spread holiday love and joy to our students and families.
