Assistance League of Fullerton collaborates with Pathways To Hope, Council of PTA Organizations, and Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots, the Salvation Army, the Los Angeles Times Family Fund, the local Board of Realtors and many church congregations in the city of Fullerton to host the Annual Holiday Clearing Program at the Pathways of Hope Distribution Center. It is located at 611 S. Ford Avenue in Fullerton, California.
The program helps approximately 800 families in need, in the Fullerton School District, enjoy the holiday season. Approximately 4,000 people receive nonperishable foods, vouchers for food and merchandise, gift cards, books, toys and other merchandise. Low income families with children in elementary and junior high school are selected by the schools to participate in this program. The program runs for 12 days from the Monday after Thanksgiving through mid-December. Families are given an appointment time to come to the Distribution Center to receive their gifts. Two chapter members help each day with the distribution of these gifts. Assistance League of Fullerton distributed $30 gift cards for our Thrift Shop to each family. This program touches many lives in our community and enriches the lives of those who contribute their time and resources.
