As the saying goes, “It’s better to give than to receive.”
Temple City residents are invited to participate in two holiday donation drives this holiday season—Sock-O-Rama and Santa’s Paws & Claws—with donations accepted through Dec. 17 at City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Dr. and Live Oak Park Community Center, 10144 Bogue St.
Sock-O-Rama will help the less fortunate with toiletries and basic clothing items. Requested items in need include basic white t-shirts for men; new white socks for men, women and children; and packaged toothbrushes and toothpaste. All donations will be distributed to the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System and Los Angeles Ambulatory Care Center which assist veterans; and the Foothill Unity Center and New Beginnings Family Church that provide support services for homeless individuals and low-income families.
Santa’s Paws & Claws helps our four-legged friends stay clean and fed at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. Items such as dry dog and cat food, toys, clean linens and towels are welcome.
For more information, call Debbie Ingram at (626) 285-2171, ext. 2361.
