The North Valley Y began this holiday tradition in 2007 when they gave out 50 baskets to needy families. Since then, the tradition of giving has grown reaching 1500 baskets in 2011. This year, they hope to raise enough to give away 2000.
They need your help.
If you know the sting of not being able to provide for your family on this holiday of thankfulness and have the means to help, the Y is asking for your generous contributions to help meet that need. And because the YMCA is a charitable organization your contributions are, of course, tax deductible.
The Y will gladly accept any amount you can give to their effort, and will gratefully accept donations of food items or grocery store gift certificates.
Or, you can drop in and give your gift of store gift cards and food items at the front desk.
If you’d like to find out more about more ways to give or volunteer to help give the baskets out, contact Tracy Karagari at 818-368-3231 ext 2325.
Want to give from the comforts of your home computer? Northridge Fashion Center is offering to give $1 for every ‘Like’ they receive on Facebook, by November 12th, which will go directly to the Turkey Day baskets. Get your Like in today (we did) to help feed those in need for Thanksgiving.
