VILLAGE JUNIOR WOMEN’S CLUB PRESENTS THE 34RD
ANNUAL “SANTA COMES TO WESTLAKE/AGOURA AND BEYOND…” FOOD DRIVE
This year's non-denominational event takes place in the Agoura Hills’ Do-it-Center parking lot on Saturday, December 7st from 9:00am-11:00am. Anyone who wants to participate can come help bag collected food and assist in the deliveries to local families in need.
Founded originally by George Annino and the Agoura Optimist Club, the annual food drive has helped over 21,000 Conejo Valley families. Its goal is to brighten the holiday season for predetermined local families in need by delivering bags of groceries directly to their door step. Numerous organizations including local churches, schools, the Boy Scouts of America, and the Girl Scouts of America participate in hosting food drives and sorting canned and packaged foods for delivery. In addition, residents of the Conejo Valley help by donating money towards a bag of groceries.
The event includes entertainment with a DJ and numerous performances from local talent including the Agoura Hills and Oak Park cheerleading teams, and Thrive Dance Center, among others. There will also be a bike raffle from Newbury Park Bicycle Shop, and other children's activities including face painting and arts and crafts. Last but not least, Santa will make his grand entrance on a fire truck and stay for pictures!
