On December 16th, 2017, we hosted our 2nd Annual Toy Giveaway and Health Fair event to kick off the holiday season by distributing toys and providing fun games and activities to families living in Sunland-Tujunga and neighboring cities. The event was a great success in that it brought community spirit alive, with children and families enjoying a fun filled and a memorable day.
With the support of our community partners and organizations alike, over 1000 unwrapped toys were donated to children (ages 0-12). The Fire Department added some excitement by attending the event and donating hundreds of toys in support of the event. . We raffled off huge teddy bears, skate boards and other toys in addition to the 10 bikes donated by the Los Angeles Police Department Foothill Division.
In line with our mission of ensuring the health and wellness of each individual, over 200 children and adults in attendance received free dental and vision screenings at the event. With collaboration with West Coast University, we offered a smooth and easy screening experience for all attendees.
Event attendees enjoyed free lunch sponsored by El Pollo Loco, in addition to healthy fruits and healthy snacks, in line with the event theme of ‘working towards a healthy 2018”.
In addition to face painting, photo booth and other fun activities, holiday treats and great music added a great touch to the event.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to all our partners who supported us in hosting toy drives and/or sponsoring the event. With their collaboration, we were able to pull off this awesome event to empower those in our community.
