Bring Joy to Families in Need

Nov 23, 2010

Many of the client families served by Pasadena’s Foothill Family Service struggle on a day-to-day basis to purchase food and necessities, all while bearing the additional strain of overcoming trauma or abuse or facing other mental health challenges.

This year, local schools, businesses and community groups are encouraged to host holiday toy drives to support FFS’s  annual Adopt-A-Family program. With the support of schools, scout troops, community members and businesses, the Adopt-A-Family program distributes gifts of clothes, toys and necessities to high-need families during the holiday season.

The donation of new toys, games and other gifts can make all the difference to the San Gabriel Valley’s highest-need children and families during the holidays.

If you are interested in holding a toy drive this season, please contact Anna Pujdak at 626.564.1613, ext. 133, or e-mail
