Interfaith Food Center Toy Drive a Great Success

Even though the Whittier Interfaith Food Center was about 800 toys short just two weeks before their big Christmas toy-give-away event, the toy drive turned out to be a big success thanks to the generosity of so many private individuals as well as organizations who contributed after hearing about the toy shortage.

The Whittier Interfaith Food Center was transformed into Santa's Workshop!

Thank you all so very much for having made this Christmas season a special one for so many underprivileged children in our community!

Whittier Interfaith Food Center Toy Distribution Day

And of course Santa was there too to hand out the toys to all the children who came.

I do not have a complete list of the organizations yet that helped contribute, but here are the ones I know about: Whittier Host Lions, Soroptimist International of Whittier, Whittier Primanti Montessori, Whittier Public Library, Whittier Woodworkers, The Whole Child, PIH. And another huge Thank You to all the individuals who opened their hearts and donated to this great cause.

Thank You also to the great Interfaith Staff and Board, as well as to the volunteers who came out to help.
Merry Christmas and see you around town!
