Santa Clara Rotarians will partner up with the Santa Clara Unified School District in making the holidays a little brighter for a group of 150 underserved children ages 5-12 with coats and toys. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be celebrated in compliance with all county requirements for social distancing, gathering, masking and sanitizing as a drive-through event with a Santa’s Winter Wonderland theme. The invited children will receive a coat, toy and goodie bag from the safety of the family car.
“The pandemic has certainly changed how we gather and increased the need for community services at the same time. Rotary has a long history of putting service above self, and this Christmas, there will be no exceptions,” said Colleen Noll, past President and Chair for the Christmas4Kids committee.
The community is also invited to donate to Christmas4Kids by shopping online at our Amazon Wish list at this link https://amzn.to/32BjZMO or if you prefer to shop on your own please drop off your unwrapped gift valued at $25 or less at any of these three Santa Clara business locations by 12/18/20 noon: Santa Clara Police Department, Mission City Grill on El Camino or Armadillo Willy’s on Homestead.
