OUR COMMUNITY, OUR WORK
Community Christmas Shoppe
This December, we hosted six Community Christmas Shoppes in Ventura County to help under-resourced families provide Christmas gifts for their children. Over 1,500 volunteers assisted with everything from personal shopping to providing food and drinks for the guests. More than 4,000 children were shopped for, and over 13,000 gifts were given out.
Serve Every Day
Nearly 500 volunteers served with us throughout the year completing repair, transportation, gardening and painting projects for their neighbors. Our ramp teams went to work on accessibility projects such as installing grab bars and building wheelchair ramps for seniors, amputees and those with disabilities.
On two days last summer volunteers from over 57 churches, businesses and agencies went out into our communities to serve those in need. Together, we served at homeless shelters, transitional centers, mobile home parks, schools and individual’s homes! A total of 7,135 people were impacted by Serve Day!
