I have seen first hand the affect of this amazing program. I grew up in Jurupa Valley and this program just doesn't help the needy. It brings our community together as a whole. The few weeks before Christmas they put on a parade complete with volunteer whom have made floats and dance as costumed characters. They do that to thank the community for their donations. Over the 20 years of the program they have helped over 1000's of families with food donations enough for two weeks, personal hygiene products for the family, school supplies for the children and 4-5 toys wrapped for each child personally addressed to the child from Santa. This program is all volunteered based everyone donates 100's of hours of their time to make this program successful.From shopping for the food, to organizing deliveries to, wrapping the presents for the children and gift tagging them. Then you have Santa and his small group of elves that visit the local hospitals on Christmas Eve to bring wrapped presents the admitted children and their families. Also making sure to stop in the lobby's at the hospitals to visit with those children too. This program truly makes you feel as though you may have many hardships a community can come together.
