Santa may be the busiest guy you know around the holiday season, but he is taking his time out of his toy-making schedule to once again help the Westlake Village Junior Women’s Club host the 37th annual Santa Comes to Westlake/Agoura & Beyond food drive.
This year's non-denominational event takes place in the Agoura Hills’ DIY HomeCenter parking lot on Saturday, December 10, 2016, from 8:30am-11:00am. Participants can help bag collected food and assist in the deliveries.
Founded originally by George Annino and the Agoura Optimist Club, the annual food drive has helped over 21,000 Conejo Valley families. Its goal is to brighten the holiday season for predetermined local families in need by delivering bags of groceries directly to their door step. Numerous organizations including local churches, schools, the Boy Scouts of America, and the Girl Scouts of America participate in hosting food drives and sorting canned and packaged foods for delivery. In addition, residents of the Conejo Valley help by donating money towards a bag of groceries for a family in need.
How can you help?
1. The Westlake Village Juniors encourage the community to join them on December 10 to sort and deliver the food. This is a great opportunity for groups, families with kids, and individuals to help their neighbors and spread the holiday joy.
2. Purchase a bag of groceries for a needy family. It is $20 per bag. Checks can be made out to the Westlake Village Junior Women’s Club and mailed to: P.O. Box 4412, Thousand Oaks, CA91359.
3. Donate at one of the designated food drives.
