We take part in this compassionate program sponsored by the Community Resource Center just before the Christmas Holidays. The event is held over three days at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. It currently serves over 6,400 needy people, over half of whom are children.
The interior of one of the Fairgrounds buildings is converted into a large warehouse-like “store”. The pre-screened families are allowed to fill a shopping cart with their choices. This dignified shopping experience provides local families with basic necessities like food, blankets and warm clothing as well as a few surprises to brighten their holidays like toys, bikes, sports equipment, and small electronics.
We are more than happy to be part of it. Why not join us and brighten the holidays for some of the local people who are in need.
This year Mission Circle supporters are participating in the Holiday Basket event at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Friday, December 18th from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. To volunteer, please sign up before Friday, November 21.
