Foothill Unity Center recently provided food boxes and toy/gift bags to more than 1,500 families this holiday season.
For more than 42 years, the center has been offering basic need services including food, health, case management, job development, homeless and housing as well as volunteer opportunities to the San Gabriel Valley Foothills. As the need continues to be great with our neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis, the organization strives to make the holidays brighter for those in need.
All pre-registered and late-registered families received a holiday food box with all the trimmings to make a holiday family meal as well as a toy/gift bag from items collected from community partners.
This year the Center promoted a theme of family togetherness with a game or puzzle also added to the gift bags. Simply Help Foundation distributed extra gift items as part of the holiday distribution.
