Since the early 1990s, chapter members have adopted families at Christmastime who were referred by the Family Resource Center in Pomona Unified School District. Members shop, wrap and give the Santa Sacks to help parents “Make Christmas Happen” for their children. Included are books, toys, clothing, toiletries, and gift cards for shoes and grocery stores. Usually, our members also tuck into the bags items for the adult family members.
In 2013, thirty-one (31) families with from four to thirteen (4-13) members were given a special holiday. This program was officially approved in June of 2013 by the national organization.
